Education, Training, Development Forum

The Education, Training, Development Forum (ETDF) is the Lean Construction Ireland community forum for higher education institutions (HEIs), other training services providers, professional bodies, and Lean trainers/consultants to meet and discuss issues, developments, and opportunities of mutual interest and of shared relevance for our common customers, namely AEC supply chain firms plus AEC clients/owners.

ETDF representatives play a crucial role on the Lean Construction Ireland Leadership Group; they ensure that the ETDF plays its part in fulfilling on the vision and objectives; and they ensure that ideas and issues from the ETDF inform the Leadership Group’s strategic planning, and likewise that ideas and issues from the Leadership Group feed into the ETDF.

The ETDF also engages with its sister forums, namely the Construction Client Forum (CCF) and the Architecture Engineering Construction Forum (AECF), to facilitate joined-up thinking on matters of shared interest and to ensure collective and collaborative advancement of Lean Construction in Ireland.

The following HEIs are actively supporting the ETDF.
