The strategic objective of BUILDING UP project is to create an effective coordination of ETPs and major initiatives whose SRAs and activities address energy efficiency in the built environment from an NMP perspective, to identify and review the needs in terms of long term research and innovation. To achieve this, six ETPs, namely ECTP (European Construction Technology Platform), Suschem (Sustainable Chemicals), EUMAT (European Advanced Material Platform), Textile ETP (European Technology Platform for the Future of Textile and Clothing), ESTEP (European Steel Platform), FTP (Forest Technology Platform), including their national platforms, have joined forces with other relevant initiatives such as the ERANET ERACOBUILD in order to build a collaboration framework which, pioneered in this CSA under the NMP theme, will be an effective demonstrator to draw guidelines and policy recommendations for the engagement of the public and private sectors in the area of Energy Efficient buildings, preparing the ground for any future implementation beyond 2013 through relevant European and National public and private (industrial) research initiatives. Indeed the main differentiator of this Coordination Action versus the running EeB PPP is that we are targeting a much long term scenario well beyond 2013, outside the scope of the European Economic Recovery Plan.

Addressing COMMON NEEDS AND CHALLENGES will pave the way towards the development of radically new products and services enabled by NMP technologies while ensuring that all the necessary bottlenecks and gaps at technological, non-technological and programme level are properly addressed for enhanced sustainability, competitiveness and employment, the key socio-economic challenges for a knowledge based and eco-innovative society in the 21st century.

PROJECT GOALS:

To contribute to the development of a Roadmap on Energy Efficient Builidngs and Districts from a cros-ETP point of view and with a nanotehcnologies, materials and processes (NMP) perspective.
Building Up consortium, coordinated by the “Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment”, (on behalf of the European Construction Technology Platform - ECTP), ensured an active involvement of a wide spectrum of stakeholders working in the energy efficiency of the built environment, yet coming from different technology sectors (e.g. steel, chemistry, textiles, materials development, forest-based products, water treatments, renewable energy etc.).
Indeed, Building Up brought together the know-how and expertise from its eleven partners, covering various technology sectors. Six European Technology Platforms (ETPs), namely:
- European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP),
- European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (Suschem),
- European Technology Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies (EUMAT),
- European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing (TEXTILE ETP),
- European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP),
- Forest-based Sector Technology Platform (FTP), including their national platforms, as well partners specialised in supporting innovation and technology transfer issues (Austrian Society for Environment and Technology, D´Appolonia and Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum) joined forces with other relevant initiatives such as the ERANET ERACOBUILD in order to perform all project activities including the development of this Building Up roadmap. The project started in May 2011 and ended in October 2012, with a final public event disseminating the roadmap.
Whilst it is based on a long term vision (up to 2050), the Building Up Roadmap focuses its main targets in the short-medium term (up to 2020), with some suggested actions for longer terms (beyond 2020). In this framework, the Building Up Roadmap includes:
* 8 Cross-Platform (CP) collaboration areas in research and innovation in the NMP field, i.e. areas considered (1) of interest by several ETPs involved in the roadmapping, (2) with high impact for the energy efficiency in the built environment. These are:
o CP1. Performance Based Approach for building components, including sustainable design, Life Cycle Analysis;
o CP2. Multi-materials and composites;
o CP3. Healthy and comfortable indoor environment (including air quality, ventilation, lighting, acoustic performance);
o CP4. Electricity generation and storage materials and systems (e.g. storage systems including building integrated energy technologies);
o CP5. Thermal generation and storage materials and systems (e.g. storage systems including building integrated energy technologies);
o CP6. Advanced thermal insulation construction materials for new buildings and existing buildings (e.g. aerogel, nanofoams, vacuum insulation panels);
o CP7. Building materials recyclability and re-use of components;
o CP8. Renewable resource-based products.
* A set of cross-cutting targets with considerations on broad non technological issues.
* The overall social, environmental and economic impact, adding specific examples on target markets and expected benefits of the proposed actions for each cross-platform areas.
