    IWG5’s brief is to deliver the Implementation Plan on energy-efficient solutions for buildings, requiring Member States to put in place measures favouring both innovation in building design and energy technologies for buildings, and the uptake of these technologies by builders. EURAC will offer scientific support establish the performance of eco-building technologies today and assist the IWG5 in setting realistic but ambitious performance targets, then monitoring progress towards them. WIP will organise study tours to buildings that set the standard in eco-renovation or construction. These will be opportunities for IWG5 members to meet the actors responsible and the people who live in or near them to collect their views. ECTP and EUREC will focus on informing IWG5 of the latest thinking around eco-buildings coming from lobbies (NGOs, associations, public authorities, leaders of initiatives like the Mission for 100 Climate-neutral Cities by 2030) and building bridges to the thinkers in those lobbies. Digitisation is a major theme coming in the new proposed EPBD. We will align the EPBD’s innovation-related comitology committees with IWG5. Fed with ideas, quantitative analysis and with white papers produced by Task Forces tackling specific innovation-related topics, the IWG5 will update its Implementation Plan. A new release will come every year and be given lots of publicity. The IWG5 members will be invited to promote it within their ministries, in order to deliver it with appropriate national policies. IWG5-CSA will play close attention to the revision of National Energy and Climate Plans in 2023 (a joint activity with ETIPs) and, depending on the final legislated EPBD, National Building Renovation Plans in 2024. These plans are where Member States lay out the policies to reach their targets. We will work for take-up by countries of each other’s good ideas.

    EeB-CA2 initiative is to provide the right set of instruments supporting technology-clustering and geo-clustering upon the whole set of EeB PPP EC-funded projects related to energy efficiency in the built environment, with the following primary ambition: to enhance and rationalise coordinated and broader dissemination, technology transfer and future exploitation activities of clustered projects, so as to help them better promoting and marketing their achievements and deliverables.

    The building sector is one of the key enablers to achieve low carbon economy goals for 2050. To deliver this potential, buildings need to transform from passive isolated elements to smart buildings, able to adapt to occupants needs and act as active nodes well integrated to the energy grids and other infrastructures. The 2018 revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) promotes the use of ICT and smart technology in buildings to streamline the existing rules. Smart technologies indeed play an essential role and can also trigger new business opportunities. However the market uptake and wide-scale roll-out of these solutions is slow due to challenges like engaging building occupants, connecting and managing various devices and systems, achieving optimal building operation, integrating buildings to energy markets, as well as the high fragmentation of the ecosystem. These challenges are common to projects related to the smart building topic and would be most efficiently addressed by breaking silos, sharing information and bridging the gaps between innovation, markets and policy. SmartBuilt4EU will consolidate the Smart Building Innovation Community with, at its core, EU-funded projects, and provide it with a package of supporting activities with two objectives: - facilitate the exchange of information between EU-funded projects and national initiatives in the field of smart buildings and the related business, policy and media; - coordinate contributions of the Smart Buildings Innovation Community to the SRI promotion, experimentation and implementation and the identification of R&I priorities to accelerate the roll out of smart building innovation, in line with the EPBD. The CSA brings together 5 partners plus 5 linked third parties, with solid complementary expertise and geographical coverage. It is structured in 6 work packages to reach the targeted impacts and unlock the smart building potential, with the Smart Readiness Indicator as key instrument.

    Within Horizon Europe, the Built4People partnership (B4P) aims, among other objectives, to connect to a set of national or regional Innovation Clusters in viWithin Horizon Europe, the Built4People partnership (B4P) aims, among other objectives, to connect to a set of national or regional Innovation Clusters in view of maximizing innovation impacts. The NEBULA projects will build upon this B4P and the New European Bauhaus initiative to activate and nurture a network of B4P Innovation Clusters, by implementing: - Improved visibility, adoption and uptake of innovative solutions that are in line with the New European Bauhaus thanks to increased awareness on benefits from innovation and better access to co-financing - Intensified, cross-sectorial and interdisciplinary peer-learning from front runners as well as cross-border cooperation and networking, - preparation for the long-lasting activities of the network of B4P Innovation Clusters and the integration of the next clusters. This project will therefore accompany a first batch of existing and emerging clusters to increase their maturity along five dimensions: full value-chain coverage; cross-sectoral integration; combined local and national/EU networking; cross border connections; and access to testbeds and demo spaces such as pilot buildings and living labs. NEBULA will support these clusters through ‘maturity push’ activities including peer learning on New European Bauhaus concepts, support to open innovation, business & finance help desk, match-making and promotional events. A minimum of 5-7 clusters will be supported by NEBULA, some already identified being part of the consortium. At least 1 of them will reach full maturity on the 5 dimensions listed above, thus becoming a B4P Front runner, model for replication. NEBULA consortium, that involves two contractual partners of the B4P partnership, will elaborate a Strategic Replication Plan to reach the contractual target of 10-15 B4P Innovation Clusters by 2028.

    Age-friendly environments are one of the most effective approaches for responding to demographic ageing and increasing the Healthy Life Year indicator. However, there is still a huge building stock not adapted to the needs of older people. Even today, new buildings don´t yet properly address the need for creating smart living environments for ageing well. Homes4Life addresses this challenge by contributing to the development of a common European framework for age friendly living environments, and defining the Homes4Life certification scheme to tackle end-users’ needs and requirements through a holistic and life-course approach integrating Construction and ICT solutions. The different socio-economic conditions (housing ownership, family structure, health system, etc) and building typologies among the EU member states will be analyzed in detail to provide the necessary flexibility to map the Homes4Life certification scheme to the specificities of each country with a user-centric approach. The scope of Homes4Life scheme will cover both new and existing buildings. The strategy to define the certification scheme will be: i) analyzing the main difficulties and needs faced by older people to age at home, ii) identifying the physical and digital solutions that increase their quality of life and wellbeing, iii) assessing the availability, functionality and quality of service of the existing solutions on a specific home. Homes4Life scheme aims to foster (public and private) investment making explicit the benefits for each stakeholder of transforming the building stock into a smart and integrated age friendly living environment. Considering the need for social consensus for the development of this certification scheme the consortium will be supported by an expert board that includes 14 key players in aging at home domain, covering complementary disciplines (investment, standardization, e-health, building and design, public social services) and a Stakeholders Community.
