Pilot project 'Facilitating access to insurance by self-employed builders and small building firms so as to stimulate innovation and the promotion of eco-technologies in the European Union'
The pilot project subject of this call for tenders should further elaborate on some aspects and recommendations of the previous pilot project ELIOS (see http://www.elios.eu ) financed under the budget of 2008. The new pilot project will analyse how a reference system on quality marks and a better knowledge of the building pathology could support (re)insurers in the risk appraisal in a way compatible with internal market objectives. In addition, the new pilot project will analyse the conditions and modalities for a greater convergence or mutual recognition of various national construction insurance regimes with a view of the internal market and the cover of building sustainability performances. This new pilot project would be carried out under the aegis of a forum, which would be composed by all the parties concerned and animated by the representatives of the Commission.
