Join the Sustainable Places 2020 Conference - 27-30 October 2020 (digital event)

Join the Conference to discuss 2020 themes on Circular Economy, Digital Twins, BIPV, Local Energy Communities, Sustainable Digital Infrastructure, and as always all sustainability topics are welcome.

Conference Scope

Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures. Renowned for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects, the scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in its name. It involves designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.

Conference Concept

Sustainable Places prides itself on being an ideal platform for the dissemination of research, the conduct of workshops, EU project clustering and networking between stakeholders of all types. SP2020 will be held over four days in digital event format. Between opening and closing keynote sessions, parallel technical sessions and project-organized workshops will be held on conference topic areas.
