Abstract

The INBAR Construction Task Force (TFC), facilitated by INBAR since 2013 and officially established in 2014, helps to coordinate activities of international research institutes and commercial companies interested in structural uses of bamboo. Prior to the task force’s initiation, there was little coordination or communication between individual research teams or commercial companies working on this subject. Currently, the TFC consists of a core group of 28 experts from 18 countries, aiming to serve as the world’s premier information and knowledge repository on structural uses of bamboo. In the past four years, the TFC has contributed many achievements including: standardisation work for structural uses of bamboo; high quality peer-reviewed publications; international projects; consultancy services; international conferences; and capacity-building for the bamboo construction professional.
