Outcomes & dissemination

The expected outcomes of EC-HVEN will include a systematic view of high value engineering in Europe and China, an established community of researchers and practitioners for high value engineering research, as well as practical guidance and enabling technologies for effective value creation based on high value engineering networks. This will contribute to the consistent growth of this body of knowledge and help researchers and practitioners to effectively capture and create opportunities in the rapidly changing global value networks.
