07-09-2016: Two researchers from Egypt complementing research on reversible building design and logistics

Two researchers from Cairo University - Egypt have started a research project at Twente University on reversible building design and logistics. The mobility of the two researchers is financed by the EU-funded Tempus projected entitled "Building Information Modelling: Integrated Design Environment for Engineering Education (BIMIDE3)". Ahmed Mohamed Lofty Elmaraghy and Usama Mohamed Atteya were invited for a three-month project based on the quality of a proposal they submitted as a part of their research work required for the MSc IEDM program funded by the EU Tempus programme. Ahmed will be working on a blueprint for a serious game on reversible logistics. Usama will work on identifying BIM needs and a prototype for a virtual simulator for reversible building design. These two projects closely tie together with the research work Marc is conducting at the moment.
