"Building of Tomorrow" on the road - knowledge transfer of the results from "Building of Tomorrow" to existing traineeships

Knowledge transfer of the programme "Building of Tomorrow" to specialists on universities, advanced technical colleges, polytechnics, construction academies, administration academies. Themes: Energy, Construction and Building Physics, Ecology and Architecture and Sociology.

Short Description




Aim of the current project was to customize the existing know-how of the programme "Build-ing of Tomorrow" for an expert audience to promote innovative sustainable construction. The project addressed universities, technical colleges and construction academies.

The knowledge transfer will contribute to strengthen the aims of the "Building of Tomorrow" and to anchor sustainable construction in Austria. The knowledge transfer addressed those target groups, who will be the future planners, executors and decision-makers of "Buildings of Tomorrow". The knowledge transfer will raise the awareness of these groups and show that the used technologies are field-proven and practical.


To customize the existing data within the programme "Building of Tomorrow", qualified ex-perts developed teaching materials, which summarise the most important results regarding the following four topics:

  • Architecture and Ecology
  • Sociological Aspects
  • Construction and Building Physics
  • Energy

Impulse events and guest lectures

The transfer was based on two main tracks: On one hand impulse events themed "Building of Tomorrow on the road" have been organised. On the other hand the results, geared to the target group, have been integrated as guest lectures in already existing lectures, seminars and series of lectures in Austrian educational institutions.

The events provided an overview about innovations, which have been developed within the programme "Building of Tomorrow". The impulse events have been held by qualified experts and have been carried out as part-time or all day events. According to the requirements and the interest of the educational institutions, it was possible to select and enhance specific top-ics.

The educational institutions are able to offer their target groups an attractive advanced train-ing with top-class experts from science and practice. The events have been developed and provided for educational institutions in whole Austria. The developed teaching material also have been provided for further target groups and have been promoted by different activities within the public relations work.


An action day with excursion to selected projects of the "Building of Tomorrow" (Solar City Linz, Christophorus Haus, Schulsanierung Schwanenstadt, Wohnhaussanierung Makart-strasse, Linz) has been carried out, to consolidate and deepen the knowledge transferred by lectures. Aim has been to make sustainable construction tangible for the target groups.
