Open Innovation Test Beds for European Construction SMEs METABUILDING LABS is a five-year Horizon 2020 EU-funded project whose main objective is to unlock the innovation potential, improve competitiveness and boost market impacts of the European construction sector’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). For that reason, an Open Innovation Digital Platform will serve as a Single-Entry Point, giving access to a powerful innovation ecosystem, including more than 100 testing facilities across 12 EU countries.
A large consortium of 40 partners have joined forces to provide the whole construction sector with easy access to a wide network of high value testing facilities (laboratories, test benches, pilot buildings and Living Labs) allowing stakeholders to develop and test innovative envelope solutions for next generation buildings. ROOM2030 participates in this project as a Living Lab through our partner ArcelorMittal, helping RTOs and technology providers to test their innovations in a real environment, facilitating the process to reach higher TRLs and market readiness.
METABUILDING LABS has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 953193.
