Building a sustainable and meaningful data flow of the EU Building stock

My list

The European building landscape is transforming, and big data is leading the way.

In this session, participants will follow this journey through the lens of practical and tangible examples. They will discover how building-related data can serve as a transmission piece between building and renovation policy, and implementation at all building levels.

Join us to discover the future of smart building in Europe, and how you can become involved!

  1. What is the European building data landscape?
  2. What role does the BuiltHub project play?
  3. Panel discussion – Big data in a climate neutral building sector
  4. How can you get involved? Introducing the Big Data Alliance

Throughout the session, the audience is encouraged to participate and steer the discussion via a virtual “floor”, in the form of polls and live interventions.

This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in the potential, status and possible pitfalls of large-scale and systematic building data collection in Europe; as well as those interested in a cost and energy effective transformation of the EU’s building stock.

  • Roman Mendle, Coordinator Sustainable Resources, Climate and Resilience, ICLEI Europe
  • Ulrich Filippi, Senior Researcher Institute for Renewable Energy, EURAC Research
  • Roel Vermeiren, Renovation Strategy advisor, Flemish Energy Agency

Session organized by


Dynamic EU building stock knowledge hub – BuiltHub” is a 4-year European Project funded under the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union.

The project seeks to develop a roadmap to continuously enhance the data needed to decide on building-related policy and business for involved stakeholders through a community and its data hub. It seeks to positively disrupt policy and market decision-making through a continuously community-enhanced evidence base.

The BuiltHub community and its platform will change the way knowledge on the EU building stock is developed and shared, and represent the full range of building stakeholders from across Europe.
