Symposium eyes green roofs over the country
Santo Domingo.- Iberoamericana University (UNIBE) on Monday hosted the Research Symposium on Green Roofs in the Dominican Republic, to preserve the structures of buildings and conserve native and migratory species.
UNIBE’s School of Civil Engineering implements the Green Roofs project, on a request to the Higher Education Ministry’s National Scientific and Technological Innovation and Development Fund (FONDOCYT), which allocated RD$10 million.
In a statement, UNIBE said the fund is an incentive for scientific and technological research for universities, research centers and specialized higher level institutions.
Dr. Bradley Rowe, of the Green Roof Research Program at Michigan State University, lectured on Green Roof Research conducted at that center of higher learning.
