Sustainable and Adaptable Building

Sustainability is a major issue in construction these days. In order to conserve our environment for future generations, we must rethink the way we make and use things and develop more intelligent and sustainable solutions to treat material and energy resources. The objective of this research is to position Twente as a centre for transformable green design and engineering in The Netherlands and internationally, and to create a roadmap for building construction in the 21st century. The research fits within the strategic research orientation (SRO) "innovation & Entrepreneurship" of the Institute of Innovation and Governance studies.
