Rivers rank among some of the most threatened ecosystems in the world, and are the focus of costly restoration programmes that cost billions to taxpayers. Much of Europe depends on water from rivers for drinking, food production, and the generation of hydropower, which is essential for meeting the EU renewable energy target. Yet only half the EU surface waters have met the WFD’s 2015 target of good ecological status, due in part to the fragmentation of habitats caused by tens of thousands of dams and weirs which also pose a flood hazard. Some barriers are old and out of use, but may have historical value, while the life span of others will soon come to an end and may need to be removed. But barriers also provide energy, water, fishing and leisure opportunities, and may also help to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Improving stream connectivity has been flagged as one of the priorities for more efficient stream restoration but effective rehabilitation of ecosystem functioning in European rivers needs to take the complexity and trade-offs imposed by barriers into account.

AMBER will deliver innovative solutions to river fragmentation in Europe by developing more efficient methods of restoring stream connectivity through adaptive barrier management. The project seeks to address the complex challenge of river fragmentation through a comprehensive barrier adaptive management process, based on the integration of programme design, management, and monitoring to systematically test assumptions about barrier mitigation, adapt and learn.

The project will conduct important conceptual work and preparatory steps towards enabling European-scale investigation of the “Critical Zone”, major ecosystems and socio-ecological systems, targeted at supporting knowledge-based decision making at various levels concerning ecosystem services and biodiversity.

The review of the eLTER ESFRI proposal submitted by Germany in March 2015 noted the HIGH to VERY HIGH scientific value and necessity of the eLTER RI and was designated as an ‘Emerging’ ESFRI RI.

The objectives of Advance_eLTER are firmly anchored in the strategic long-term goals of the eLTER RI, but strictly focus on the challenges identified by the ESFRI review:
● Detailed design study (WP1), including an in-depth analysis of the scientific questions driving the eLTER RI physical site network design and instrumentation;
● Prioritization of eLTER services for key user groups (WP2), and a plan for eLTER RI services at all service provider levels (central, cross-site, individual site);
● Cost analysis and Business plan, for the future eLTER RI operation (WP3);
● Organisational framework of eLTER RI (WP4), comprising the development of a robust governance scheme, enabling shareholder negotiations and identifying the most suitable legal framework;
● Consulting, communication and team-building (WP5), advancing the national eLTER ESFRI processes, specifying the role of eLTER in the environmental RI landscape and developing staff capacity for the eLTER ESFRI process.

HISER – Holistic Innovative Solutions for an Efficient Recycling and Recovery of Valuable Raw Materials from Complex Construction and Demolition Waste

Koordynator:
FUNDACION TECNALIA RESEARCH & INNOVATION, Spain

Jednostka realizująca z woj. łódzkiego:
ASM CENTRUM BADANI I ANALIZ RYNKU Sp. z o.o., Poland

Dane łódzkiego lidera:
UL. GRUNWALDZKA 5, 99-301 KUTNO

EU28 currently generates 461 million tons per year of ever more complex construction and demolition waste (C&DW) with average recycling rates of around 46%. There is still a significant loss of potential valuable minerals, metals and organic materials all over Europe.
The main goal of HISER project is to develop and demonstrate novel cost-effective technological and non-technological holistic solutions for a higher recovery of raw materials from ever more complex C&DW, by considering circular economy approaches throughout the building value chain (from the End-of-Life Buildings to new Buildings). The following solutions are proposed:
– Harmonized procedures complemented with an intelligent tool and a supply chain tracking system, for highly-efficient sorting at source in demolition and refurbishment works.
– Advanced sorting and recycling technologies for the production and automated quality assessment of high-purity raw materials from complex C&DW.
– Development of optimized building products (low embodied energy cements, green concretes, bricks, plasterboards and gypsum plasters, extruded composites) through the partial replacement of virgin raw materials by higher amounts of secondary high-purity raw materials recovered from complex C&DW.
These solutions will be demonstrated in demolition projects and 5 case studies across Europe. Moreover, the economic and environmental impact of the HISER solutions will be quantified, from a life cycle perspective (LCA/LCC), and policy and standards recommendations encouraging the implementation of the best solutions will be drafted.
HISER will contribute to higher levels of recovered materials from C&DW from 212 Mt in 2014, to 359 Mt in 2020 and 491 Mt by ca. 2030, on the basis of the increase in the recovery of aggregates, from 40% (169 Mt) to more than 80% (394 t) and wood, from 31% (2.4 Mt) to 55% (5 Mt);. Similarly, unlocking valuable raw materials currently not exploited is foreseen, namely some metals and emerging flows.

BERTIM – Building energy renovation through timber prefabricated modules

Koordynator:
FUNDACION TECNALIA RESEARCH & INNOVATION, Spain

About 40% of the overall energy consumption in Europe is related to the building sector and represents about 1/3 of Europe’s CO2 emissions. The successful accomplishment of the emission reduction target by 2050, involves the need to increase the rate of retrofitting of the inefficient building stock up to 2.9%. In order to increase the renovation rate, more efficient renovation processes from design to manufacturing phase are needed. The use of prefabricated modules for renovation reduces on-site works, installation time, works intrusiveness, minimising the consumption of raw material; however there is a need to define holistic methodologies to adapt prefabrication processes to individual renovation solutions as well as to mass production, linked to computer design tools.
Giving answer to the mentioned needs BERTIM will provide: (1) High energy performance prefabricated modules for deep renovation, integrating windows, insulation materials, collective HVAC systems, renewable energy systems and energy supply systems. The modules will be based in timber and recyclable materials for a low carbon foot print. The assembly system will guarantee a very little time in the installation and low disturbance to tenants. (2) An innovative holistic renovation process methodology based on a digital workflow from design to installation phase. In order to support the renovation process, a renovation project design tool oriented to SME integrating BIM with CAD/CAM tools and assuring the interoperability with CNC machines for mass manufacturing processes will be developed and implemented in three industrial settings. (3) Affordable business opportunities for different stakeholders as potential leaders in the launching of the renovation process. The whole renovation process and the developed timber modules will be validated in a full-scale research infrastructure, and then, they will be demonstrated in two real buildigns in two different climatic zones (South and North Europe).

BGTEC is a Polish SME, active since 1996 in the production of customised windows and fenestration products for high-end clients; our current niche market consists of new constructions and deep retrofitting projects, in particular nearly zero energy single-family houses, villas and passive houses. As a result of our continuous product development efforts to fulfil market demand, in 2012 we have conceived an innovative idea for a reversible window technology, the WISER window. Windows operated through a rotation across mid axis are state of the art, however none of them allows users to rotate the window sash 180° and lock it in the new position. WISER reversible window technology is enabled by innovative hydraulic gaskets and burglar-proof electro-magnetic locking mechanisms fully integrated in the structure of the frame, operated via a simple to use control system which can be integrated to a central building automation infrastructure or central security system. WISER is the only window that can reduce the thermal radiation from the outside during summer season, and reduce the thermal dispersion from the interior in the winter, thanks to the double positioning of the low-E glass. Enhanced ventilation is permitted through an innovative use of the active gaskets, permitting air flow while keeping the window locked. WISER window can be easily adapted to different climates and seasons along the year as well as material combinations and building types. WISER allow easy, cheaper and safer cleaning of glasses on both sides. WISER product family is aimed to change the way people interacts with windows: its unique design satisfies in a single product the needs for energy efficiency, indoor climate, security as well as easier and safer cleaning. It represents therefore an incredible business opportunity for us to move from a niche onto a multi-million market with a much larger international presence, in line with the ambition of the projects to get funded under the SME Inst.

P2Endure aims to provide scalable, adaptable and ready-to-implement prefabricated Plug-and-Play (PnP) systems for deep renovation of building envelopes and technical systems. These innovative solutions will be used to transform non-functioning or sub-optimal public and historic buildings into dwellings, and applicable for the widest range of building typologies, i.e. public buildings, residential buildings, and transformation projects.
The main innovation of P2Endure comprises PnP prefab systems enabled by 3D printing, laser and thermal scanning integrated with Building Information Model (BIM). The promoted solutions are SME-driven and geared to rapid and low-disturbance on-site assembly processes for deep renovation.
P2Endure presents a proof-of-performance of the optimised PnP renovation techniques by implementing 10 large-scale and live demonstration projects that represent the main deep renovation typologies and real market demand in 4 EU geo-clusters. This will be done through progressive steps known as “4M: Mapping – Modelling – Making – Monitoring” throughout a 4-year project duration. These demonstration cases give evidence of the achieved 60% energy saving after deep renovation along with 15% cost saving and 50% time saving at renovation, and high indoor environmental quality. The P2Endure project leverage in total primary energy saved is: 19.121 GWh/y.
Wider impacts on replication and market upscaling are guaranteed by a Technology Commercialization Platform (TCP). On this platform P2Endure builds up a critical mass of building owners and their projects, local authorities, supply-chain actors, including leading industrial players in prefab building and technical systems that provide the necessary vehicle for innovative SMEs to enlarge their EU and global market shares through P2Endure solutions.

IMPRESS will develop three different prefabricated panels for buildings: (i) a polyurethane based insulated panel with improved thermal performance and light radiation and (ii) a thin, lightweight pre-cast concrete sandwich panel, with optimum thermal and weathering resistance, both of which are suitable for overcladding; (iii) a lightweight pre-cast concrete sandwich panel incorporating Phase Change Materials (PCM) to adapt the thermo-physical properties of the building envelope and enable optimum passive heating and cooling benefits, suitable for recladding. Innovative nano/micro particle based coatings, suitable for 3D printing, will be also developed to achieve anti-corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength, improved solar reflectance, improved ageing resistance and anti-vandalism properties.

To create the panels, an innovative manufacturing process will be created that includes Reconfigurable Moulding (RM) techniques, 3D laser scanning and 3D printed technology. In addition, 3D printed microstructured formworks will be developed as permanent external layer for the polyurethane panel to match the existing building aesthetics and provide solar radiation efficiency. The overall manufacturing process will (i) allow for mass production of panels, which take into account complex architectural and aesthetic issues, (ii) allow for faster production while lowering prefabrication costs and (iii) develop new controlled and cost effective solutions.

IMPRESS will also develop a new Iterative Design Methodology, which will incorporate all stages of the Design-Construct-Install-Operate process. This will be integrated with a BIM cloud based database focussing on the interoperability between software tools required for the prefabricated process. Furthermore, new penalty based business models will be investigated. The final result will be demonstrated on two existing buildings where final as-built product performance will be validated against the initial design.

We will validate an affordable (28% reduction of total costs) and lightweight (35% weight reduction) solution for envelope insulation to bring existing curtain wall buildings to “nearly zero energy” standards while complying with the structural limits of the original building structure and national building codes.
Two key commercial insulating products:
• Highly insulating mono-component and environmentally friendly spray foam, EENSULATE foam, for the cost-effective automated manufacturing and insulation of the opaque components of curtain walls as well as for the significant reduction of thermal bridges during installation (SELENA and EVONIK in cooperation with ULSTER);
• Lightweight and thin double pane vacuum glass, EENSULATE glass, for the insulation of the transparent component of curtain walls, manufactured through an innovative low temperature process using polymeric flexible adhesives and distributed getter technology, thus allowing to use both annealed and tempered glass as well as low emissivity coatings (AGC, SAES and TVITEC in cooperation with ULSTER and UNIVPM ). A multi-functional thermo-tunable coating will allow for dynamic solar gain control as well as anti-fogging and self-cleaning properties (AGC in cooperation with UCL).
They will enable insulating solutions that Focchi, DAPP and Unstudio will promote with two different levels of performance:
• EENSULATE Basic curtain wall modules where the thermal and acoustic insulation will be provided by the novel EENSULATE glass and EENSULATE foam in the spandrel combined with state of the art low-e coated glass;
• EENSULATE Premium modules integrating the thermo-chromic coated glass with additional self-cleaning and anti-fogging functionalities.
BGTEC will exploit the limited thickness and high insulating properties of the EENSULATE glass to introduce in their range innovative solutions for the fenestration challenges in historical buildings, compatible with the original window frames and sash designs.

Artificial lighting is a global and growing industry. New forms of efficient solid state lighting (SSL) in particular are rapidly gaining a market share. New OLED technologies (Organic Light Emitting Diode) can revolutionise this industry as they have done in displays because of their potential flexible structure, infinite tailoring of their properties, efficiency and high colour quality. Industrial forecasts predict that the OLED lighting market will grow from $200 million in 2015 to $1.7 billion by 2020. In order to fully benefit from this huge market potential, Europe`s academia and industry are eager to develop new technologies and recruit highly qualified staff.

The high demand for OLED SSL lighting however will place drastic demands on the use of very expensive and rare iridium. EXCILIGHT aims to explore exciplex emitters and thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) in OLEDs that will enable us to replace Ir complexes whilst retaining ultrahigh efficiency and giving many new possibilities to simplify OLED design, helping to reduce costs and increase yields of production.

Our network will train 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the development and application of exciplex and TADF emitters, who can apply their expertise directly in future positions. EXCILIGHT is characterised by an innovative multidisciplinary approach, based on i) a combination of synthesis, physical characterisation and development of devices with the lighting industry, ii) an appropriate balance between research and transferable skills training, and iii) a strong contribution from the private sector, including leading industry and SMEs, through mentoring, courses and secondments.

EXCILIGHT will positively impact the employability of its ESRs in the OLED industry through scientific and industrial training at the local and network level. With this approach we aim to train a new generation of scientists at the same time as integrating this exciting new technology into industry.

The aim of this project is to establish a new centre of excellence in the Lodzkie Region, Poland, by creative and collaborative efforts, i.e. TEAMING with Max Planck Society (MPS), Germany, as the internationally leading institution. The planned International Centre for Research on Innovative Bio-based Materials (ICRI-BioM) will focus on design, synthesis, characterization and practical implementations/applications of advanced materials, exemplified by biomaterials, bio-products, and multifunctional smart polymer systems. This program fits into the Regional Strategy of the Lodzkie Region as one of smart specialisations, represented in the regional strategic documents, as well as the national strategy. An added value will be the synergistic effect created by combining expertise and ambitions of main research institutes in this area from Lodzkie Region and MPS. During the first year, a strategic Action Plan will be created with teaming partners and other participants: industry, research, regional and national authorities. The proposed Business Plan will describe a vision for the establishment of the ICRI-BioM: (i) long-term science and innovation strategy; (ii) organizational and management structure; (iii) a legal form of independent, autonomous non-profit institution; (iv) all required operational regulations. At the first stage of its activities, ICRI-BioM will be supported by national and regional funds, European structural and investment funds, Horizon 2020 and research, innovation and competitiveness Union – related programs. Within several years, the ICRI-BioM will become the strategic interdisciplinary research centre and it will influence the economic development of the region and country. By teaming with MPS, as the best European research institution, we trust that ICRI-BioM will be able to mimic the best research practices, adopt them into Polish reality and re-invent and re-shape the Polish research landscape.
