2017 Impact Workshop on the cPPPs in Horizon 2020

The yearly Impact Workshop for the three contractual Public-Private Partnerships (cPPPs) took place in Brussels on 16-17 May 2017. It was the occasion for the cPPPs projects to present their successful outcomes, advancement and more generally share their experience and good practices of project-building.

As regards the Energy efficient Buildings (EeB) cPPP, the first day of the Impact Workshop was organized by the ECTP E2B Committee. The workshop began with two addresses by the European Commission on the topics of energy efficiency in buildings through Horizon 2020, cPPP achievements and challenges followed by an introduction to the proposal amending the Energy Performance of Building Directive. It was then divided into four sessions, with EeB cPPP projects “success stories”:

• Advanced Materials and nanotechnology
• Design, Construction Process, end of life, cross cutting information
• Technology Building blocks, Energy Performance monitoring and management,
• ICT, BIM/Data and Interoperability.

A zip file with the EeB cPPP project presentations is available here.

The second day was organized by the European Commission and focused on success stories from the EeB, Factories of the Future and Sustainable Process Industry cPPPs. Discussions focused on lessons learnt from the cPPPs, difficulties encountered, as well as the “after end-of-project” impact.
