On March 16, BUILD UP had the pleasure of hosting the webinar entitled “Data-driven innovations for monitoring the performance of buildings", jointly organised by two new Horizon Europe Projects, DigiBUILD and MODERATE.
WATCH THE FULL SESSION HERE
Both projects are working on data-driven solutions to turn raw data from buildings into meaningful knowledge and to improve the interoperability between datasets. The webinar focused on presenting both projects and providing the audience with an introduction to the innovative solutions that they are working on.
The webinar kicked off with an introduction from Stavros Stamatoukos from CINEA, who spoke about the Horizon Europe call “Need for advanced data-driven monitoring of building stock”.
This was followed by an introduction to the MODERATE project, by Cristian Pozza, MODERATE Coordinator & Senior Researcher with the Institute for Renewable Energy at EURAC research, Philipp Mascherbauer, Research Associate at Vienna University of Technology, who discussed enabling secure and effective data sharing through synthetisation techniques, and Daniele Antonucci, Senior Researcher with the Institute for Renewable Energy at EURAC research, who discussed optimising building performance with data-driven services and the MODERATE platform.
After the introduction to MODERATE, we heard from Diego Arnone, DigiBUILD Project Coordinator & Senior Researcher at Ingegneria Informatica, who introduced the DigiBUILD project. He was followed by Gian Marco Revel, Professor at Università Politecnica delle Marche, who presented DigiBUILD use-cases and technical requirements for smart energy services, Susana Martín, Head of the Energy Efficiency Area at CARTIF, who discussed developing an open, federated and enriched Data Lake for building data, and finally, Elissaios Sarmas, Research Associate at National Technical University of Athens, who presented a toolbox of AI-based data-driven services for the built environment.
The project presentations were followed by roundtable discussions, moderated by Jasper Vermaut, EU Policy & Project Officer, and with representatives of related projects, specifically:
- Tasos Tsitsanis, Business Development Director at Suite5 Data Intelligence Solutions Ltd, from BEYOND project
- Stoyan Danov, Senior Researcher at CIMNE, from BIGG project
- Ulrich Filippi Oberegger, Senior Researcher at EURAC research, from BuiltHUB project
- And Dario Pellegrino, Researcher at Ingegneria Informatica, from MATRYCS project.
The webinar closed with a big thank you from Jasper Vermaut, EU Policy & Project Officer.
