To sum up, ProGETonE develops and proves an integrated approach to tackle two important needs in existing buildings: safety upgrades to face future earthquakes in seismic zones and nearly zero energy consumption to be aligned with EU climate change reduction targets. Residents in two pilot sites in Greece and the Netherlands will be involved in the design and implementation process from the beginning to consider their views and motivations, so as to deliver satisfying renovations for them and spread them to other EU citizens.
ProGETonE stands for Proactive synergy of inteGrated Efficient Technologies on buildings’ Envelopes and has a total budget of 5 million euros including funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723747.
The consortium developing the action is integrated by universities, technical consultants, manufacturers, SME’s, public authorities and associations from 8 countries. The activities started with the recent project launch May 2017 and will last for 48 months up to April 2021.
