DbXchange is a platform for DesignBuild projects, which connect professional education with practice, scientific research and social engagement. The open access platform provides tools for communication, collaboration and the exchange of knowledge offered by its members. It welcomes students, professionals, teachers, organisations, clients and donors to participate.


The network stimulates scientific, sustainable, practice related and interdisciplinary education, fosters multinational cooperation and promotes research and knowledge transfer related to DesignBuild activities. It engages in discussions about the restrictions, challenges, difficulties and pitfalls of DesignBuild initiatives.

It promotes the DesignBuild teaching method and provides information and tools to ease and enhance the quality of project implementation.

The network aims to become a lively and growing association, representing DesignBuild initiatives at Institutes of Higher Education and providing a corporate identity towards national and international institutions.
