Abstract

Technology plays an essential role in accelerating and improving various construction processes, so both academia and industry have interest in adopting and adapting technologies in their research or projects. In this respect, academic and industry collaboration has increasingly become essential in the construction industry. A critical step for academia-industry collaboration is to understand how academia and industry accept and reject technologies differently. Therefore, this study aims to examine the technology maturity gap between academia and industry. In a partnership with the Construction Industry Institute's Horizon-360 team, we investigated the levels of acceptance for the emerging technologies by academic research and the architecture, engineering, construction, and facilities management (AEC/FM) industry through an onsite and online survey, and classified the identified technologies into relevance and maturity. The survey results show that there are several technologies viewed differently between academia and industry. The findings from this study will serve as the basis in closing the gap for more active emerging technology-oriented academia-industry cooperation.
