Linked Data technologies have been developed in order to connect concepts in a structured way, enhancing machine readability and enabling many features like semantic queries. The potential of such technologies is wide in many fields, in particular in the construction sector, which could benefit in many ways by their application.

The renovation sector is crucial for a sustainable development of the construction market. Buildings account for 40% of the energy consumed today in EU, but annual renovation rates are limited to 0.4/1.2% in Europe. Also, a large share of buildings has more than 40 years and it is not adequately heated, bringing to a low efficiency of the building stock in terms of energy and comfort1.

The RenoZEB Platform is a web-based environment where different actors and software tools can work together managing a renovation project, sharing the data and the BIM models, centralizing the files, assigning tasks. Moreover, it allows for setting targets and KPI objectives, managing renovation alternatives and automatically connecting to external tools for importing indicators and results which cannot be directly calculated by the platform.

Interoperability in the construction sector is a key issue and researchers, developers and designers have tackled since the introduction of CAD systems. Traditionally, engineers, architects and site operators interact and track their information exchange through paper or digitalized drawings and e-mails. With the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques and tools, operators are using new solutions and methods to keep track and exploit these data.

The report provides an overview of the training courses delivered in the field of BIM and nZEB at HEIs and VETs in Europe (in particular the partner countries). The main contributions determine:
1. types and level of trainings for BIM and nZEB at national VETs and HEIs and degree of fragmentation of courses
2. the transferability of these trainings at EQF level in the partner countries and EU

BIM methods and tools have an increasing impact in the construction sector, to help to improve the productivity and cooperation across its full value chain. While BIM has mainly been applied on new buildings, the BIM4Ren project investigates its use and potential in renovation projects, through easy-to-use tools, to achieve the EU energy targets for the European building stock. In this first webinar, we will present the general concept and challenges we are tackling.
