H2020 project Green INSTRUCT Kick-off meeting in London

H2020 project Green INSTRUCT kicks off at Brunel University, London.

The Green INSTRUCT (Green Integrated Structural Elements for Retrofitting and New Construction of Buildings) kick-off meeting was held on 13 – 14 October, 2016 at Brunel University in London. The meeting was attended by all the partners.

Green INSTRUCT, project number 723825, is funded under topic EEB-04-2016: “New technologies and strategies for the development of prefabricated elements through the reuse and recycling of construction materials and structures” of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The Green INSTRUCT project will develop a prefabricated modular structural building block that is superior to conventional precast reinforced concrete panels by virtue of its reduced weight, improved acoustic and thermal performance, and multiple functionalities.

During the meetings all issues related to the commencement, management, finance and technicalities of the Green INSTRUCT project were presented and discussed. Key focal points were the technologies to be used, specifications of materials and methodologies, end-users requirements and industrial scenarios for the implementation of project results. The partners engaged in technical discussions during the two days and committed in the project tasks foreseen in the Grant Agreement.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723825.
