SBE21 Heritage warmly welcomes contributions from different research fields.
We are looking forward to receiving submissions covering best practices of energy retrofit in the built heritage sector, conservation-compatible solutions, methodologies for a multidisciplinary design process with a focus on regional development and the Alpine Space in particular, and policy and decision–making tools and guidelines.

This hard-stone elementary school is located in Mulhouse in the Alsace region (north-eastern France), near the border with Germany. It is a listed building, since it was built in XXVIII sec as a spinning factory at a time which Mulhouse had an active textile industry and became a school in 1870. It has recently been retrofitted with a project balanced between low energy consumption and heritage preservation, with the availability of a constraint budget.

From small medieval towns in Italy to the elegant nineteenth-century boulevards in Paris; from the zen Buddhist temples in Kyoto to the colourful cathedrals of Mexico’s colonial cities: buildings reflect our culture and need to be preserved to tell our grandchildren the same story they told our fathers.

Historic buildings constitute a considerable share of the European building stock. About 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, with 26.4% dating from before 1945 . Improving the energy performance of historic buildings (i.e. buildings built before 1945) improves the internal comfort conditions while reducing the energy demand and therefore reduces the risk of fuel poverty.
