The international collaborative research project BIMy has been awarded with the ITEA Award of Excellence for Innovation. The ITEA project BIMy focused on how building information modelling (BIM) can be used and exploited beyond its normal use, and how to improve integration of BIM and geographic information systems (GIS). It created a shared space for digital representations of construction projects in their environments, enabling collaboration between multiple stakeholders within the Smart City domain and paving the road for new applications.

In various sectors, composite materials can offer advantages thanks to their properties that are not possible with conventional materials. However, the limited awareness of these materials and their properties remains an obstacle to their (further) breakthrough. To promote the exchange of best practices, Sirris and Agoria Composites are organising a Composites Learning Network.

To reduce its environmental impact the construction industry is continuously looking for alternative solutions. One of them is the use of bio-based coatings and paints. The improvement and replacement of components of paints and coatings formulations is a challenging process, because of a possible impact on the final properties of the coating. A new project aims to establish and validate novel bio-based coating systems for use in the construction industry, by replacing fossil ingredients with bio-based ones with the same or better performance and durability.
