The RIB CostX® Educational Program was established in order to provide free industry-leading technology to educational institutes. From the first License issued back in 2007, to today having several thousand activeLicense in more than 100 institutes, we are confident that the RIB CostX® Educational Program continues to deliver innovative value into the academic scene and transform the construction industry from the ground up. Why do we do it? Unlike other areas, the global construction industry has been slow in adopting new technologies. While globalisation helped other industries prosper, the construction sector has stagnated over the least 40 years due to severe fragmentation. We recognise that the key in reforming the industry lies in greater collaboration through digitalisation and hence, the RIB CostX® Educational Program was born.
