This yearly publication presents the progress of a portfolio of 174 European research projects aiming at developing new technologies for energy efficient buildings. 110 projects have been co-funded within the EeB PPP under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) from 2010 to 2013 and 64 projects under the Horizon 2020 Programme (H2020) between 2014 and 2018.
The 2019 edition of the Project Review highlights current results and achieved or expected benefits of the EeB PPP projects. The overall target is to develop breakthrough affordable technical and business driven solutions at building and district scale. The projects demonstrate scientific and technological excellence, across the whole value chain, from early stage conception to demonstration of almost ready-to-market innovations.
Categorised into 7 technology-clusters defined according to the construction-related research & innovation value chain from the EeB PPP Roadmap (Design, Technology Building Blocks, Advanced materials and nanotechnology, Construction process, Energy performance monitoring & management, ICT and BIM), the 174 research projects presented in this brochure illustrate the diverse innovation approaches and the importance of embracing all aspects of the building and construction sectors. And this year, the 6 new H2020 projects - all categorised in the BIM cluster - spotlight on the great tendency toward digitalization of the built environment.
