Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes Workshop
25-27 November 2020, Dresden, Germany
According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Furthermore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050.
Nanotechnology offers Energy Saving Solutions for Buildings such as Smart Windows, Solar Energy Harvesting, Active Energy Storage or Super Insulative Elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.
We welcome you to a colorful technical workshop to see the latest trends and discuss about most promising technologies for the Energy Efficient Buildings of the future!
Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)

This workshop is organized by the IMPROOF consortium, registration is open for all stakeholders from both industry and academia.
There will be a free workshop to share the results of the work.
It is scheduled to coordinate with the 32nd Ethylene Producers Conference.
The Event will be at The Marriott Marquis Houston, 1777 Walker St. Houston. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the event is postponed to 16 August.
Building the future 2020 - boosting innovation in the construction industry
15 July 2020
Energy efficiency in buildings is a major global challenge: Buildings and their construction account for 36 percent of global energy use and 39 percent of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions annually. But how can we make this industry more sustainable?
Join INNOVIP online event "Building the future 2020 - boosting innovation in the construction industry" on 15 July 2020 if you would like to find out how innovative new construction materials and solutions can help reduce the carbon footprint of buildings and foster a circular economy. You will get valuable insights into developments in the building sector that go beyond state-of-the-art.
The event marks the finalisation of the EU project INNOVIP (GA #723441). It is hosted by the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) in collaboration with the Forschungsinstitut für Wärmeschutz (FIW) and the Network for Solid Construction Bavaria.
Participation is free of charge, but registration until 13 July is compulsory.
