The goal is to boost the deployment of technologies, services and operating models that combat climate change and support low carbon practices in the construction sector, change operating methods, and increase productivity.
Buildings, building products and construction constitute a significant sector in responding to questions related to climate change mitigation, low carbon practices, and the circular economy. Projects may be associated with energy efficiency, climate and environmental solutions, new energy solutions or the low carbon built environment, and related digital solutions. Responding to challenges calls for cross-sector expertise and networks between different parties.
In the funding call for a low carbon built environment, Business Finland provides funding for new creative research through aid. The aid is intended for independent research projects of companies or co-innovation projects conducted with research organizations. Municipalities and other public procurement units can apply for support for innovative public procurement.
