Four VUB teams receive a million Euro to do research on sustainable housing renovation !
Innoviris, the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation, launched in mid-2012 the call 'Strategic
Platform Environment" for multidisciplinary research on "retrofitting for the built environment".
The Belgium Building Research Institute coordinates the platform that was called "Brussels Retrofit XL". This year eleven projects were selected. No fewer than four projects belong to VUB research teams with strong representation of young ZAP members (Senior Academic Staff) of the faculty Engineering Sciences. Together their projects are worth one million euros.
Erasmushogeschool Brussel was also selected with Marc Runacres project on small windturbines for the city.
