Advancing Sustainable Housing: European Experts begin Collaboration

15.11.2011
European knowledge brokerage consortium launches a series of “Policy meets Research” workshops on sustainable housing, starting in Helsinki/Finland on 23-25 November 2011

In the light of global climate change, a growing fossil energy crisis and on-going demographic change, the future of individual and collective housing faces some fundamental environmental, social and economic challenges. To encourage transition towards more sustainable housing, the European consortium CORPUS has now launched a workshop series, which aims to enhance evidence-based policy-making in this domain.

The latest research and current policy approaches will be merged using new tools of knowledge brokerage. The workshop series will bring together European experts from housing research and policy-making, in order to facilitate knowledge sharing and community building. The kick-off-workshop is to be held in Helsinki, Finland, on 23-25 November 2011. In parallel, a website has been established (http://www.scp-knowledge.eu/section/housing) to serve as a platform for knowledge exchange and professional networking.

“Recent winters, where e.g. in some Eastern European countries a secure heating has been at risk due to shortages in gas supply, show some of the urging aspects of moving ahead in sustainable housing”, explains Gerd Scholl, scientist at the Berlin-based Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) and coordinator of the European consortium. The upcoming expert workshop aims at exploring major sustainability challenges in the housing domain, and will discuss key issues such as barriers to energy savings in households, ecological architecture, energy saving refurbishment and socially sustainable housing.

“Our central goal is to enable direct exchange between policy-makers and researchers from different European countries”, explains Scholl. “By a deeper understanding of how different factors shape sustainable housing, we want to promote new policy approaches addressing the future of housing.” Among the key note speakers in this workshop is Gerhard J. Meyer, Professor at Erfurt University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Architecture.

Two subsequent workshops will take place in March and June 2012. They will address policy strategies and instruments promoting sustainable housing and develop scenarios of a sustainable housing future. “We want to generate a solid picture of sustainable housing based on sound scientific evidence”, states Scholl. “Sustainable housing has to be less energy intensive, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and include social aspects at the same time. Ideally, the picture that we want to develop will reveal common as well as divergent views, and also help identify future challenges for knowledge brokerage in this field.”

The European consortium “CORPUS – Enhancing the connectivity between research and policy-making in sustainable consumption” is funded within the EU Seventh Framework programme. It aims to experiment with, and develop, new integrative modalities of knowledge brokerage in sustainable consumption policies. In addition to sustainable housing, the consortium addresses the domains of sustainable food and sustainable mobility.

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 in Shanghai

Die AchemAsia geht in ihr viertes Jahrzehnt und bricht auf zu neuen Ufern: Das International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production findet vom 21. bis 23. Mai 2019 in Shanghai, China statt. Gleichzeitig erhält die Veranstaltung ein aktuelles Profil: Die elfte Ausgabe fokussiert auf Themen, die für Chinas Prozessindustrie besonders relevant sind, und legt den Schwerpunkt auf Nachhaltigkeit und Innovation.

1989 wurde die AchemAsia als Spin-Off der ACHEMA ins Leben gerufen, um die Bedürfnisse der sich damals noch entwickelnden Iindustrie in China zu erfüllen. Seit...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: Li-Fi erstmals für das industrielle Internet der Dinge getestet

Mit einer Abschlusspräsentation im BMW Werk München wurde das BMBF-geförderte Projekt OWICELLS erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Dabei wurde eine Li-Fi Kommunikation zu einem mobilen Roboter in einer 5x5m² Fertigungszelle demonstriert, der produktionsübliche Vorgänge durchführt (Teile schweißen, umlegen und prüfen). Die robuste, optische Drahtlosübertragung beruht auf räumlicher Diversität, d.h. Daten werden von mehreren LEDs und mehreren Photodioden gleichzeitig gesendet und empfangen. Das System kann Daten mit mehr als 100 Mbit/s und fünf Millisekunden Latenz übertragen.

Moderne Produktionstechniken in der Automobilindustrie müssen flexibler werden, um sich an individuelle Kundenwünsche anpassen zu können. Forscher untersuchen...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
