Mission

BIMe Initiative's mission is to accelerate the digital transformation of the Built Environment.

Vision

BIMe Initiative's mission will be achieved by demonstrating new ways of thinking, researching, learning and collaborating.

Goals

BIMe Initiative mission and vision are expressed as three complementary goals:

Goal 1: Help practitioners to improve their digital competence.

Goal 2: Assist organisations to adopt, adapt, and innovate practical digital solutions internally and on collaborative projects.

Goal 3: Support policy makers in improving the digital transformation strategies for a country or region.

Note: each goal is subdivided into measurable objects (defined per project). Projects may address more than one goal.

Deliverables

The BIMe Initiative will fulfill its goals by delivering open-access resources for all to freely use (refer to respective licenses). Targeted deliverables can be end-products for practical use (e.g. a web tool or a template) or conceptual components needed to build end-products.

Projects

The BIMe Initiative's targeted deliverables are achieved through interconnected projects subdivided into self-organising microprojects and workpackages.

Methods

The BIMe Initiative deploys a mixture of methodologies and methods to reach its goals. These include knowledge engineering, systems thinking, and semantic structuring methods - all supported by published peer-reviewed frameworks.

Principles

All BIMe Initiative activities and outcomes are guided by a set of General Principles that community volunteers agree to upon joining. Agreement to these General Principles is signaled by signing the Excellence Manifesto.
