As part of its actions for the Horizon EU project, RECONMATIC, Future Needs is delighted to invite you to the online clustering event on circularity in construction, hosted on the BUILD UP platform, on 28 February 2024 (13:00-14:30 CET). Register and scroll down for more information!
In this clustering event, sustainability experts and key stakeholders in construction, IT, automation, business, and communication disciplines will be brought together to provide an overview of the European priorities for the Twin Transition in the sector and identify collaboration opportunities between five research initiatives with similar goals.
Namely, the representatives of the projects Beeyonders, CircularB Cost Action, Reincarnate, RobetArme, and Valrec will join their counterparts in the RECONMATIC project, in a discussion panel that will pave the path to independent collaboration workshops on specific research topics.
RECONMATIC works on providing solutions to digitalise and automate construction and demolition waste management (CDWM), aiming to mitigate or reduce waste and foster higher added value reuse of construction and demolition waste materials.
At the same time, this clustering event will contribute to narrowing the gap between the research community and industry stakeholders who are invited to share their hurdles and experiences in implementing circularity along various construction life cycle stages. Given the high potential social impact of the project on European society, this event is open to the general public.
