About R&D Council

The Research and Development Council is one of the many specialized groups of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). The members are a diverse collection of individuals involved in R&D facility management encompassing a wide variety of industries (basic sciences, biotechnology, chemicals, consumer products, health care, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, telecommunications, technology, etc.). These facility professionals have the responsibility to effectively plan, design, construct, utilize and maintain a variety of buildings and facilities for their owners and clients.

High Tech Seminars in 2017:

Learn About Laboratory Room System Integration and Automation

Thursday, April 20, 1 PM-2PM EST

New developments in room automation bring lighting controls and automated shading together with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The result is a room that is integrated for energy efficiency, responsive to demands of occupants, and more cost-effective to construct than separate control systems.

During this webinar, Jim Coogan of Siemens Building Technologies will discuss how a single interface can combine HVAC, lighting, and daylighting to engage users and provide a uniform, logical feel to the whole laboratory system.

RDC members can register for free using the code sent by Jaclyn Lee on 3/22/17.

Through our connection with I2SL we will continue to bring you the High Tech Seminars presented and hosted by I2SL.  As a member in the Research and Development Council your attendance at the webinars is FREE.  The usual non-member cost is $95.  Keep an eye out in your emails for more details.

RDC agrees to publicize and promote I2SLs conference in each communication with its members, when inviting members to participate in the High-Tech Talks via a written description, and a link on RDC's website via the I2SL widget as provided from I2SL. In addition, RDC will put links to I2SL on its website, in its newsletters, and on its LinkedIn page. Check back for upcoming webinars and events!
