Dissemination of Results

The RGHRP’s publications and new developments, including monitoring technology, are in the public domain and hence available to Canada’s consulting engineering community for use on national and/or international projects, helping to maintain Canada’s role in engineering excellence. It also provides Canada with an international stature and focus for knowledge and technology transfer between nations that would otherwise not exist.

Fifteen (15) workshops have been held over the course of Phase I through III in order to share the progress of the research with participants, industry stakeholders and sponsors. The proceedings of the workshops have been published on CD-ROM. A detailed summary of all of the reports, papers and theses are also available. For more information on obtaining a CD or for obtaining specific report, please refer to our Contact Us Page.
