As an architect and urban planner, Dr Branka Dimitrijevic started her career in practice and moved to academia following an M.Sc. in Conservation and Revitalisation of Architectural Heritage and a Ph.D. in History of Architecture. After completing an EPSRC funded research project on durability, adaptability and energy conservation in buildings (1998-2000), her research and teaching expanded to sustainable urban planning, building design and refurbishment. She has planned or/and managed academic/industry knowledge transfer projects such as Network of Construction Creativity Clubs (an EPSRC funded joint project of 14 universities across the United Kingdom, 2000-2001), the Centre for the Built Environment (a joint project of three Scottish universities, 2002-2008, funded by European Regional Development Fund and Scottish Government), Scottish Construction Centre (a joint project of Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Dundee, BRE Scotland and CIRIA, funded by Scottish Enterprise, 2008-2009) and the current project CIC Start Online (funded by European Regional Development Fund and Scottish Government, 2009-2013). Along with academic and industry links across the United Kingdom, Dr Dimitrijevic is a Visiting Professor at the Polytechnic University of Bari and the University of Basilicata in Potenza (both in Italy) and an external researcher in the project Spatial, Environmental, Energy and Social Aspects of Developing Settlements and Climate Change - Mutual Impacts, undertaken by the Institute of Architecture and Urbanism of Serbia (funded by Ministry of Science of Serbia, 2011-2014). For the latter, she will be co-editing the book that is being prepared and planned for publishing in English in 2013.
