AbstractToday, in the Digital Age, the Internet is becoming the most effective medium to transfer knowledge, developed under government R&D programs, to the industry. Presenting research results on the Web allows scientists to use effective knowledge dissemination and research collaboration tools, and companies to have timely anywhere, anytime and on-demand access to valuable research information. This is especially important for AEC companies, typically small and medium size businesses, that don't have enough resources to conduct their own research or to search for information published in scientific journals and conference proceedings. Currently, in Canada, on average 9 out of 10 AEC companies are connected to the Internet. Web resources are increasingly becoming important sources of vital information for AEC companies and the proposed new knowledge dissemination model could provide excellent knowledge transfer channels for new strategic economic development directions.
