Build & Connect is a reference event to intensify and promote transformations in the construction sector. A conference organised every two years since 2014 by Fibres-Energivie.
The Fibres-Energivie competitiveness cluster was born in 2015 and is the only European cluster focused on the construction sector that brings together all actors of the value chain (from material suppliers to integrators): chemical industry, materials, building design, building systems industry, energy equipment, energy equipment, building trades, building maintenance and real estate development.
The latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a wake-up call. The curve of greenhouse gas emissions must be reversed in the next 3 years to limit global warming to the critical threshold of 1.5°C.
The building sector must lead the change. Its professionals are already mobilising to fundamentally transform their activities by updating processes, materials and technologies in order to align themselves with this crucial requirement.
This 5th edition of Build&Connect focuses on the diversity of ways to reach the climate target and gives a voice to those who are already taking the initiative to transform the sector.
The Spanish Platform for Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation Technologies in Digital Environments (PET MSO-ED) is no stranger to this situation, and will be present in Strasbourg, through its Innovation Manager, with a double objective: to offer the platform’s services and to seek entities to establish relationships by identifying common synergies. For this purpose, the platform has already formalised an agenda of meetings with business leaders and representatives of the sector.
