Share this Post:

Fit-to-NZEB is an Horizon 2020 project dedicated to improve the knowledge and skills of the building professionals to deliver quality renovations works with significant energy saving impact.

The FIT-TO-NZEB project aims to increase the competence and skills of the building professionals in all participating countries - Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Croatia, Ireland, Austria and Greece - through unique educational programmes and pilot training courses, which will contribute to both the quality and the scale of the deep energy building renovations. The project will produce all necessary requisites for the introduction of educational content on deep energy retrofit in the curricula at all levels of the vocational training and education system - universities, professional high schools and colleges, vocational training centers.


The project will use the training and communication infrastructure of its predecessor Train-to-NZEB, which already operates 5 training centers in Eastern and Southern Europe: in Bulgaria, Romania, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Ukraine. To this, it will add the capacity of 4 universities, 1 professional college and 4 training centers in the current composition of the team.


Fit-to-NZEB provides a training tool, structured as a catalogue of Learning Outcomes including compendium of knowledge, skills and responsibilities that the learner is supposed to possess after finishing the deep energy retrofit (DER) training programme at different European Qualification Framework (EQF) levels.


The catalogue is structured according to 17 topics, chosen by Fit-to-nZEB project partners.
