Living Future Europe President Carlo Battisti will keynote this year’s InnoRenew 2020 International Conference.


InnoRenenw CoE sees solutions to the climate crisis in the science of buildings and materials; however, many challenges remain: addressing sustainability in building construction, operation and use; optimising renewable materials; understanding human patterns of behaviour within the built environment; improving occupant well-being and enhancing social cohesion.


Confronting these challenges through interdisciplinary science will allow us to construct a built environment that is sustainable, healthy and supports society’s growing need for advanced building and renovation techniques.


Success in this endeavour will be built upon InnoRenew CoE’s foundation of scientific work, creativity, innovation, industry cooperation and societal engagement.


Our vision is to be both a world leader in the interdisciplinary science of the built environment and a model for international research excellence, industrial collaboration and public engagement.
