The goal of the project FEDER ‘Living Labs Brussels Retrofit’ is to promote the renovation of Brussels housing by creating privileged spaces destined for experimentation and innovation: the living labs. During four years, these pilot projects will allow the development of know-how and an improvement of the cooperation with the construction sector, resulting in the arrival of a volume market for eco-energetic renovations.

During four years, these pilot projects will allow the development of know-how and an improvement of the cooperation with the construction sector, resulting in the arrival of a volume market for eco-energetic renovations.
Tested and improved following the projects, these techniques and procedures could then be implemented on a larger scale in order to offer accessible solutions for renovations in the Brussels Capital Region, both for the private sector as well as for social housing. This will also allow the improvement of the cooperation between the construction sector and the research organisations.
The implementing organisation, the Wetenschappelijk en Technisch Centrum voor het Bouwbedrijf (WTCB), has been around since 1959 and was founded by and for the sector. WTCB is composed of Technical Committees that are linked to practice, and a research centre that pursues innovation in the construction sector.
