The programme "Demonstration projects Industrial, Flexible and Demountable Building" (known by its Dutch abbreviation IFD) is a joint initiative of the SEV with the Ministries of Economic Affairs (EZ), and of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (VROM). The ministries are eager to promote the application of IFD building principles by industry and the market, so that the method can become embedded in conventional building practice. The motives of the ministries for participating in this programme are different. VROM has goals in the field of sustainability and durability, EZ hopes to improve the innovative force of the building industry. The SEV is the independent organisation that organises the selection of the projects, follows the progress in practice and disperses the lessons learned from the projects. In this paper the following items will be discussed: 1. The IFD programme 2. IFD Building in the Netherlands 3. Background of the programme 4. The selection of new IFD demonstration projects 5. Lessons learned 6. What knowledge is missing?
