Webinar – Data-driven innovations for monitoring the performance of buildings

Start date:16-03-2023
End date:16-03-2023
Location:Online Event


Advancements in building monitoring and control systems have allowed for much more comprehensive and in-depth data on the performance of buildings, which further allows for optimising the building systems. Simultaneously, the production of all this data creates new challenges, especially when it concerns the interaction and interoperability between different data platforms, which don’t have a harmonised approach on how to collect, store and use the collected data. This has created a multitude of non-interoperable data silos within the building industry and prevents fully exploiting the raw data that is available.

There is a need for a set of data-driven solutions that strengthen the interoperability between platforms to further aggregate data and allow for data analytical tools to gain deeper insights based on more comprehensive datasets.

DigiBUILD and MODERATE are two new Horizon Europe working on data-driven solutions to turn raw data from buildings into meaningful knowledge and improve the interoperability between datasets. Join the first webinar of these sister projects on 16 March 2023 to find out more about the innovative solutions both projects are working on, with a keynote by CINEA on the topic and joined by older big data projects for an open discussion.

The webinar is hosted by BUILD UP, the European Portal for Energy Efficiency in Buildings.
