Clust-ER Edilizia e Costruzioni
The “Associazione Clust-ER Edilizia e Costruzioni” (Clust-ER Build) is an association of public and private bodies (companies, research centres and training institutions) that aims to support the innovation system in the building and construction field, developing collaborative research and technology transfer activities, according to the priorities of the regional Smart Specialization Strategy (S3).
The mission is to offer innovation opportunities through a collaborative approach for companies that focus their activity in R&D strategic sectors.
The Association aims to:
facilitate the process of specialization of the productive systems with reference to the regional Smart Specialization Strategy (S3) technological priorities;
strengthen the capacities of the innovation system to promote strategic projects within high regional social, economic and environmental impact and stimulate networking opportunities among research laboratories, companies, universities and high vocational training centers.
submit to the Emilia-Romagna Region proposals for the implementation of initiatives aimed to the achievement of the S3 objectives;
facilitate the participation of the clust-ER associated members to funding programs, as well as national and international research networks
create synergies and partnerships through the development of permanent networks with other public-private organizations operating in similar contexts at the EU level.
The Association operates in the field of three strategic lines of research and innovation through working groups, or Value Chains, representing the Emilia-Romagna building and construction system:
1) Conservation and valorization of built heritage toward the improvement and smart reuse, by means of technological and process innovations
2) Energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings, for energy efficient, resilient and sustainable buildings
3) Safety of buildings and civil infrastructures, to mitigate vulnerability and environmental (seismic, hydraulic and hydrogeological) risks.
4) Digital Instrument for Urban regeneration focuses on blockchain for building, regeneration of spaces and climate adaptation
