Innovative – Future-oriented – Competitive. Perspectives for the Austrian Construction Material Industry

The construction material industry is part of the energy intensive industry facing the requirements of the EU energy and climate policy that demand new options for innovative technologies and business models. This sector will play a decisive role in the development of future infrastructure, from infrastructure for buildings and mobility to energy supply. In this framework the project aims to develop innovative perspectives for the Austrian building materials industry and examines the entire value chain, including issues such as the static functionality of a building, the properties of concrete, cement and clinker, or the use of energetic and non-energetic raw materials, with the corresponding opportunities for innovation in terms of raw materials, processes, products and business models.
