Launch of the EU-funded project i-climabuilt: kick-off meeting.
On March 22 and 23, the kick-off meeting of the European project i-climabuilt (Functional and advanced insulating and energy harvesting/storage materials across climate adaptive building envelopes) takes place virtually, involving 27 partners from 14 countries (Greece, Spain, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Belgium, United Kingdom, Cyprus, Italy, Estonia, Denmark, Switzerland, and Poland) to share the project goals, expectations and launch the initial actions.
The overall aim of the 48-month project, co-ordinated by National Technical University of Athens - NTUA (Greece) and funded by the European Commission through the #H2020 programme, is to set-up a sustainable ecosystem (Open Innovation Test Beds) for efficient and fast upscaling materials for building envelopes.
The main objective is to offer, through its Single-Entry-Point, common access to upgraded infrastructures and tools for testing, validating and upscaling new technological solutions in the field of functional and advanced insulating and energy harvesting/storage materials across climate adaptive building envelopes.
Building upon its relevant experience in the field of recycling materials in construction, the main role of CETMA within the project is to co-lead the Pilot Line 6 for insulation components utilizing waste materials and provide its support for characterization and testing activities on building materials and components.
