The Sustainable Places 2020 conference this year was held as a digital event and gathered nearly 600 participants. Despite the difficult situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event turned out very successful and all discussion panels went smoothly.
Due to the pandemic lockdown on 20th October we met remotely for the fourth time. Despite many COVID-19 related challenges we are facing, the project is progressing well and we are just finishing the first major task related with the industry and academic evidence that corroborates and reinforces the correlation between skills and education, and energy performance and quality.
We are currently conducting research to highlight evidence that corroborates and reinforces the correlation between education, energy performance and quality. Share your views on this topic and feel invited to participate in a workshop on the 30th October, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (CET) via Zoom.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for discussions and to explore the correlation between energy efficiency and training in greater detail. The discussions from the session will inform our research and aid in the development of tools so as to improve energy efficiency training in the construction sector. Your opinion will be much appreciated and will help us to prove that is essential to act quickly on the market level to reduce the threats arising from lack of skills in energy efficiency in the construction sector and interconnected sectors.
You are welcome to join the discussion on:
