The construction sector is facing soaring prices of commodities, severe shortages, and paralysing delays. Given the unique characteristics of the construction industry and the type of contracts signed between construction companies and their clients, special care is required.
To this end, Luxinnovation has asked researchers from LIST (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology) and the University of Luxembourg to carry out a study on supply shortages in the construction industry. The objectives of this study aims at identifying and assessing key challenges faced by stakeholders in this sector, the consequential impacts, and charting paths for exploration to possibly guide decision making and corrective action.
An essential part of the study is a survey to develop a comprehensive view on the evolution of the situation of the sector and how the global shortages unfold in Luxembourg.
Those involved and interested in the construction sector and its supply chains are invited to participate to the survey via the following link: surveymonkey.com/r/Construction_Survey
The survey will remain open until 10 September.
The direct input from participants in the survey will help to accurately describe the current situation and propose measures that are needed to manage it in the best interest of the involved parties. The results of this survey will be reported only in an aggregated form in the final report of the study, protecting personal data of participants.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Ms Caroline Muller at Luxinnovation at the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
