EUSEW 2021: Energy Talks 25 - 29 Octobre 2021

The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) took place on 25-29 October 2021 under the theme: ‘Towards 2030: Reshaping the European Energy System’.

This year, as last year EUSEW went digital. The event comprised a 3-day digital Policy Conference, the EUSEW Awards, the second European Youth Energy Day as well as 1:1 video meetings, virtual stands and other networking activities. Participants had access to online side events and Sustainable Energy Days, digital events that took place all over Europe.

ARISE project coordinator Paul McCormack presented in the section #energytalk '10 key policy recommendations on #digitalising the #construction sector for a clean #energy #transition'. He explained why the construction industry must empower their staff to enable them to design a digital transformation roadmap for the sector.

Sustainable energy skills in the construction sector joint workshop 2.0 at #SP2021

ARISE H2020 project was presented in the Sustainable energy skills in the construction sector joint workshop 2.0 at Sustainable Places 2021 (#SP2021).
ARISE, CEST, HP4ALL, BIMZEED, BUSLeague, CrafEdu, INSTRUCT, PRO-Heritage, SEEtheSkills, TRAIN4SUSTAIN, the nZEB Roadshow, and nZEB ready projects reviewed the learning units/ training modules developed by each project, presented the target groups addressed by them, shared the progress so far and concluded with future plans.
The webinar was organised in two different parts, the first one addressed a plenary session of the practice initiatives designed to increase skills in the construction sector while a dedicated half-hour encouraged participants to raise their questions to the speakers and build an open debate.

ARISE will develop an on-demand mobile-friendly training project portal forc and sustainable energy in the construction sector. The project will also create a "cryptocurrency" of development skills and learning in the digital built environment to stimulate engagement and quantify skills development and learning.

Gathering 21 Virtual Conference - 21st - 23rd Sept 2021

Construction Innovations for Future Generations

Thursday 23rd Septembre Paul McCormack, ARISE H2020 coordinator, presented the project at CitA Ltd BIM Gathering in Ireland

The event acts as a focal point for all stakeholders, both from home and abroad to come together to share their research, case studies and experiences of working with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Digital Technologies.

The 5th BIM Gathering conference was hosted virtually due to the continued presence of COVID-19.

This year the theme of the Gathering was:

Construction Innovations for Future Generations”.

Despite the challenges we face with the continued presence of COVID-19 there is positivity with the rollout of vaccines and the response of the Irish Government to fund a Build Digital Project (2021-2026) providing coordination and leadership to deliver increased digital adoption across the entire Irish construction and built environment sector.

This year the Gathering focused on what has hindered digital adoption to date and the innovations and interventions that will be necessary to unlock greater productivity in our sector. This includes a cultural shift in attitude towards BIM adoption; enabling a digitally enabled safer and healthier work environment; use of BIM collaboration standards as the new norm; getting BIM and off-site production to work and in hand; innovative procurement and contract vehicles; highly skilled workforces; smarter cities, smart buildings, and data; new and emerging technologies; more involvement of women in BIM and construction, and a paradigm shift towards a circular economy.
