Trainings are to be prepared for civil engineers, architects, site managers, site supervisors and other middle and senior level construction professionals within the ingREeS project financed by EU Horizon 2020 programme.

The modules of training programmes for individual construction professions or functions will include thematic areas such as design principles of nearly zero energy buildings nZEB, technology of renewables in the design of buildings, efficient integrated planning with BIM, quality control in construction, project management, recycling and waste management, building physics and many others.

The aim of the Slovak Chamber of Civil Engineers, the lead project partner, is to include these trainings in the lifelong education of its members as well as other construction professionals even after the end of the project.

Based on the outcomes of this workshop ingREeS project moves to its next stage – the preparation of five training programmes. This stage will be coordinated by University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna in cooperation with Technical University of Graz, Civil Engineering Faculty of Slovak Technical University and other project partners.
