Our MeZeroe vision
As an applied research center, EURAC’s overall aim with the MEZeroE project is to create a long-term sustainable collaboration between industry (material producers, façade manufacturers, practitioners, contractors, and also end-users) and the research community to develop innovative façade systems that enable healthy and highly comfortable indoor environments while ensuring the structural reliability of the façades, the possibility of integrating active systems such as PV, and the minimization of the energy consumption.
