Which social issues does the CSTB's research address?
The embodiment and appropriation of these issues are at the core of this eff ort, resulting in four strategic areas of action: achieving "buildings and neighborhoods for living well together"; recontextualizing key societal challenges like "buildings and cities facing climate change"; addressing the key to success largely through "innovation, reliability in construction and renovation"; and, fi nally, mobilizing "the circular economy and resources for the building industry."
This distinguishes the CSTB and its partners from other organizations. We need a systematic and multidisciplinary approach, both socioeconomic and technical, to these strategic areas of action.
