Third International H4.0E Steering Group Meeting

The H4.0E partners convened in Almere, Netherlands on the 4th-5th of March 2019 for the third international Housing 4.0 Energy Steering Group meeting. The partners discussed what is going on generally in the project and focus of the project deliverables of the coming period. The focus of this meeting was on the second Regional Stakeholder Group (RSG) and implementation of the solutions/recommendations of the partners' RSGs. Another part of the meeting was dedicated to the upcoming work packages with updates from each partner.

In addition, a significant amount of time was set aside to discuss Techniques, Materials & Building Systems used in the four pilot regions. This workshop was led by South West College (SWC) as well as the 4 pilot regions, overseen by the Province of Flemish Brabant, 3CEA, EIfI-Tech and Almere, with each partner contributing to the output.

On the second day of the project meeting, the H4.0E partners were joined by Joost Nieuwenhuijzen, Director of the European Federation for Living, a unique network in Europe which combines the expertise and core activities of over 50 (social) housing companies, private companies and academic institutes.

For the last part of the meeting, the partners were able to enjoy the beautiful Almere weather at the Grondstoffen Collectief Almere (Raw Materials Collective Almere), organised by hosting institution Gemeente Almere. By touring the multifaceted Raw Materials Collective, the H4.0E partners were able to explore how excess/unwanted aquatic plants are processed into city furniture and paper by Millvision BE, and how concrete is recycled into Almere city bicycle paths by Cirwinn. The ‘’field trip’’ was particularly relevant to H4.0E partners, as the focus of the tour was on circular building and circular building materials.
