Aerogels are open-porous, high-performance thermal insulation materials that can be used for very thinbuilding insulation. So far, the application conditions of these materials and their potential in heritagebuildings have not yet been described comprehensively. This review shows the technical properties ofcommercially available aerogel materials – such as blankets, boards and renders – and their use scenariosin heritage buildings, taking into account the heritage criteria of authenticity, integrity, reversibility andcompatibility.

As a non-EU country, Switzerland is not obliged to implement the EPBD, not even in the frame of the bilateral contracts. However, as a full member of CEN, the Swiss Association for Standardization (SNV) has – as all other CEN members – agreed to adopt all European standards and publish them as national standards. For the building area, this has been delegated to the Swiss Association of Architects and Engineers (SIA).

It is clear that we need to build a more sustainable world. Groups of people from all different areas are working towards this goal. However, so often we work in silos, trying to leverage our specific expertise only. The problem is that climate change is complex. The challenges we face and transformation we need impact a huge variety of actors, topics and fields in an interrelated way. These are not separated by expertise or field, so our approach to overcoming climate-related challenges can’t be siloed either.
