Promoting Circularity in Construction

The RECONMATIC partners were delighted to organise the online Clustering Event: Promoting Circularity in Construction, hosted on the BUILD UP platform on 28 February 2024 (13:00-14:30 CET). RECONMATIC works on providing solutions to digitalize and automate construction and demolition waste management (CDWM) aiming to mitigate or reduce waste and foster higher added value reuse of construction and demolition waste materials. 

The project proudly announced its initiative to join forces with more projects and organisations working on circular construction and form the Circular Contruction Cluster.

In this clustering event, sustainability experts and key stakeholders in construction, IT, automation, business and communication disciplines were brought together to provide an overview of the European priorities for the Twin Transition in the sector and identify collaboration opportunities between several research initiatives with similar goals.

Namely, the representatives of the projects Beeyonders, CircularB COST Action, Reincarnate, RobetArme, REDOL and Valrec joined their counterparts in the RECONMATIC project, in a discussion panel that aspires to pave the path to independent collaboration workshops on specific research topics.

The aim of this clustering event and the the Circular Construction Cluster is to contribute to narrowing the gap between the research community and industry stakeholders who are invited to share their hurdles and experiences in implementing circularity along various construction life cycle stages. Given the high potential social impact of the project on European society, this event was open to the general public.

We aspire that this is be an initial step to take the research for circularity and sustainability in the construction sector to the next level.
