The consortium brings together partners experienced in glass architecture, building simulation and energy management but also in experimental testing, HVAC systems, manufacturing of glazing units and construction of façades. It is very well balanced between RTD and industrial sectors covering the whole innovation value chain of the future building skin and gives an important role to participating SMEs.
The pool of project partners have been selected to cover the complete knowledge needed for significant progress towards defined objectives and beyond. The strong added value of this proposed project is the quality of new and previously established partnerships, which are prerequisites for successful cooperation with a common goal. In principle, each industrial partner could rely at least on one RTD focussed partner, which will help to address various issues and to include fundamental knowledge, should this be necessary.
