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)
Events earlier this year
A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) in support of the SDGs
14-15 October 2020, Berlin, Germany
This Citizen Science - SDG conference is an official event of the German Presidency taking place in Berlin and online:
The conference will present, evaluate and discuss the contributions that citizen science makes in framing and achieving sustainable development, specifically the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations.
It will bring together expertise from European and international high-ranking policy makers, institutional and citizen scientists, non-governmental organisation and civil society to implement mechanisms and processes for the transition towards a more sustainable future.
EMP-E 2020: Modelling Climate Neutrality for the European Green Deal
6-8 October 2020, Online
The fourth conference of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) will take place on 6– 8 October 2020 and will be hosted by the European Commission DG Research & Innovation. The conference is organised in co-operation with the H2020 Energy Modelling Group, made up of eight Horizon 2020 projects.
The EMP-E brings together scientists and policy makers working on current energy modelling and energy policy issues, looking at the current and future opportunities for change. This annual conference seeks to bridge the gap between scientific modellers and policy makers at all levels.

Final Conference of the InnoWEE project, 23 September 2020
23 September 2020, Online
Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of EU energy consumption and 36% of the greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings are therefore the single largest energy consumer in Europe.
At present, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old and almost 75% of the building stock is energy inefficient. At the same time, only about 1% of the building stock is renovated each year. Renovation of existing buildings can lead to significant energy savings, as it could reduce the EU’s total energy consumption by 5-6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%.
How can we make this industry more sustainable?
Join our online event if you would like to find out how innovative economically viable, flexible and modular solutions able to process high amounts of CDW waste and reaching at the same time a high performance in terms of energy-efficiency and environmental and economic impact. You will get valuable insights into developments in the building sector that go beyond state-of-the-art.
ICSD 2020 : 8th International Conference on Sustainable Development
9-10 September 2020, Rome, Italy
European Center of Sustainable Development in collaboration with Canadian Institute of Technology will organize the 8th ICSD 2020 International Conference on Sustainable Development, with particular focus on Environmental, Economic and Socio-Cultural Sustainability.
The Conference theme : Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: Research, Practice and Education
The 8th ICSD 2020 will be an excellent opportunity to share your ideas and research findings relevant to the Sustainability Science, through the European network of academics. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect. Papers will be published in Open Access EJSD Journal (Thompson Reuters) and Proceedings. This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD 2020 program: 1. Economic Sustainability: Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance Emerging Countries, International Trade 2. Environmental Sustainability: Water and Soil conservation, Healthcare, Renewable Energies, Food and Enviromental Legislation 3. Socio-Cultural Sustainability: Sustainable Urbanism, Education, Human Development, Psychology, Sociology We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community send an e-mail at: email@example.com Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person.
