The CTA Energy and Environmet Technical Officer, Germán López, and the Consultant Rocío de la Rosa participated on 4th and 5th of June in the 1st Conference on Research and Application of Key Enabling Technologies for Innovative Buildings (CRAKETIB), held in Lisbon within the framework of the European SUDOKET project.
The aim of the conference was to discuss the research and application of innovative Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for construction industry, namely the integration of renewable energy in buildings, thermal storage, intelligent management, new materials and examples of good practice.
The expert in Energy and Environment of CTA spoke about the opportunities for open innovation in the energy sector to the participants, mostly students and professionals from universities, technology centres and industrial companies. This was the first of the three conferences scheduled in the project, the second CRAKETIB will be held next year in Barcelona.
The Key Enabling Technologies provide the basis for innovation in a range of products across all industrial sectors. They underpin the shift to a greener economy, are instrumental in modernising Europe’s industrial base, and drive the development of entirely new industries. The European Commission has identified Europe’s KETs as a key element of European industrial policy and notably the re-industrialisation of Europe.
The SUDOKET project is funded by the Interreg Sudoe programme and aims to boost European growth around innovative buildings, enhancing the research and development capabilities of Key Enabling Technologies solutions for these buildings at universities and research centers.
