TOGETHER: Innobuildings Conference 2017

Share this Post:

Psychology and climate change? Smart meters and marketing? The Innobuildings 2017 conference connects these topics for the first time, even though they may seem remotely related.


In 2016, seven Central European countries decided to launch the Interreg CE Together project to collaborate in reducing the energy consumption of their public buildings. This project will attempt to reach their goals without major investment and retrofitting and by using the latest scientific methodes from the field of behavioural sciences.

As the project is reaching its halfway point, the seven partners will share the latest results of their pilots and discuss the related topics with the help of recognised lecturers from Hungary and elsewhere.
