The Embassy of Finland in Berlin, the organizers of the Finnish BIM Pavilion at the BIM World Munich and Business Finland Germany invited to a first Finnish-German BIM event at the Nordic Embassies in Berlin in May 2023.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has already revolutionized the construction industry, and it will continue to significantly shape the future of architecture, civil engineering and infrastructure development.
In this BIM Seminar and Networking Event the topics were how BIM is currently utilized in Finland and Germany and what benefits and opportunities BIM can bring for the construction industry from building permit development to the infrastructure sector and from building owners and construction companies to all construction professionals.
After the seminar with four short keynotes and the six interesting "teasers" from the Finnish BIM companies followed a lively networking event and brought together Finnish and German construction professionals and government representatives in the industry in an open atmosphere.
We thank all speakers and participants who were interested in this event! Special thanks belongs to the Ambassador of Finland Anne Sipiläinen for the opening speech and the Embassy Team for the organisation for this event at Felleshuset.

Finland has been among the earliest adopters of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and therefore is a key player in driving the innovations for the AEC industry.
The basis is in OpenBIM, which has been set as a standard by governmental stakeholders. However, OpenBIM is not only driven by the government. Currently, the entire AEC industry and the enthuastic people behind the varios companies support OpenBIM!
The Finns are very open to future Finnish-German cooperation with the BIM topics.
