We are glad to invite you to our Drive 0 Final Symposium and Clustering Workshop titled: ‘Fostering experiences from EU innovation projects to accelerate a sustainable built environment’ in collaboration with PLURAL, STEP-UP, INFINITE, BuildUPspeed and GigaRegioFactory projects.
The event takes place at the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels on Wednesday 15 November 2023.
This full-day, in-person event is organized to convene a diverse audience, including esteemed EU representatives, participants from EU H2020 and LIFE projects, and various stakeholder groups rooted in Brussels, such as those in construction, manufacturing, social housing, architecture, and property owners associations.
The primary focus is to engage in discussions about the profound impact of innovative construction and renovation approaches on both policy and the market, drawing insights from experiences from the ground.
Throughout the event, we will delve into emerging trends and pivotal topics within the realm of sustainable built environment, covering areas such as prefabrication, circularity, off-site construction, modularisation, digitalisation, and industrialisation.
Our program will feature compelling high-level keynote speakers, captivating project poster exhibitions, dynamic policy dialogues, and inspiring success stories from commercial enterprises active in various member states.
