Together with Partners from Finland, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom, we have started cooperation within the INSTRUCT project, which aims at changing the approach to energy-efficient construction. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 894756.
The full name of the project is “Evidence-based market and policy instruments implementation across the EU to increase the demand for energy skills across construction sector value chain”. The main task of the consortium is to develop training courses and cooperation schemes for the construction industry in the field of energy-efficient buildings and to initiate legislative changes in this area.
The objectives of the project are:
- raising awareness about the benefits of sustainable energy skills and especially the correlation between education in the field of energy efficiency and the effects of acquired skills in the form of energy gap and greenhouse gas emissions reduction,
- adaptation of current tools and provision of new educational solutions (training, certificates, energy skills passports/registers, mobile applications, new legislative frameworks or public procurement practices, initiatives for home and building owners and new partnerships with producers and retailers) for the construction industry,
- testing the developed educational solutions and tools in 8 selected locations in Europe (among others in Poland),
- promoting the results of the project, supporting the authorities in the development of the legislative frameworks,
- systematising issues about the need of relevant qualifications of construction workers in private and public procurement.
ASM is responsible for the coordination of the whole project and demonstration activities in Poland, promotion of achieved results and project administration.
