Build4People partnership

I hereby would like to inform you that the European Commission is inviting stakeholders to join a discussion on the establishment of the Build4People partnership – a research & innovation partnership on ‘people-centric sustainable built environment’. It will provide a cross-cluster structure, bringing together public and private sectors to create research and innovation pathways based on a holistic view of the built environment for sustainability and better living. The Build4People partnership will be implemented under the Horizon Europe programme (2021-2027). The event will take place on Thursday 12 December 2019 (10:00 – 16:00), in Brussels.

The event will be web streamed.

Background

Buildings and infrastructure are pivotal in the socio-economic transition towards achieving a sustainable and climate-neutral economy. People spend most of their lifetime in buildings, which are responsible for approximately 50% of energy consumption on their whole life-cycle, 50% of all extracted materials, 30% of water consumption, and 36% of CO2 emissions in use phase. Construction and demolition waste is one of the heaviest and most voluminous (25%-30%) waste streams generated in the EU1. Building design and indoor air quality are also critical to EU citizens’ health and well-being, as we spend the vast majority of our time in buildings. Achieving a low carbon built environment is also key challenge in the context of the strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate-neutral economy by 2050, in line with the Paris Agreement objectives, launched by the Commission in November 2018.
