METABUILDING is a 3-year Horizon 2020 EU Innovation project funded by the European Innovation Council and SME Executive Agency (EISMEA).
15 European partners join forces to support SMEs from 6 European countries, bringing innovation to the “traditional” value chain of the Construction sector and expand it to other industries to create an enlarged Built Environment industrial sector enabling these SMEs to internationalise their activities and reach European markets.
Both raising awareness and training specific skills in the construction sector is a huge commitment. INSTRUCT intends to create a complete operational framework to increase the number of skilled building professionals and blue collar workers over the whole value chain (both for renovations and new constructions), and offer a set of service to support raising awareness of home and building owners and tenants about the benefits of sustainable energy skills, and the public authorities for the development of new legislative frameworks, e.g. requirements for skilled workers in public procurement.
