Med-EcoSuRe (Mediterranean University as Catalyst for Eco-Sustainable Renovation) is a project funded by the European Union under the ENI CBC MED programme.
The programme is managed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Italy) and aims to promote cross-border cooperation in the Mediterranean region.
Low-energy educational buildings are becoming the standard for new buildings in European and Mediterranean partner countries. Meanwhile, the potential for efficient renovation of existing buildings continues to be a focus of development in these countries. Universities are continuously proposing technical solutions for eco-sustainable building renovation, but there is still a gap between designed models and real-world application.
The Med-EcoSuRe project is based on the key role that Mediterranean universities play in contributing to environmental development and combating climate change. The project brings together researchers and stakeholders to build a common understanding of the problems of eco-sustainable building renovation and aims to leverage the regional process from knowledge to action, starting in the immediate neighbourhood of the university, which is the university building.
A “Living Lab” will be established to propose energy renovation solutions to university energy managers based on decision support tools that take into account s
Being at the core of the project activities, the academics involved will not only produce scientific solutions adapted to real-life situations, but will also monitor and scale up the improvements induced.
Assess and implement innovative and eco-sustainable energy renovation solutions for Mediterranean higher education institutions and introduce an active collaborative approach to decision support.
The expected results of the project are as follows:
– 6 passive solution design toolkits for the retrofitting of higher education buildings.
– 2 policy tools for the modernisation of energy efficiency in higher education buildings.
– 6 cross-border strategic plans for the modernisation of university buildings.
– 6 energy audits carried out in selected higher education institutions.
– 9 pilot actions for energy efficiency modernisation.
