In recent decades an international building system has emerged through the central cities in both industrialized and developing countries. This system includes materials and components that overlap and work simultaneously with regional and local practices. The interaction between innovations developed at different international and local perspectives on building systems could explain how a variety of sustainable construction techniques have emerged in different locations.
In that sense, this scientific meeting aimed to bring together companies and researchers from diverse backgrounds working on the problem of the introduction of more sustainable construction methods from different disciplinary perspectives. Through discussion and exchange of ideas is expected to help develop bridges to future research collaboration as well as joint and reflect on opportunities for financing projects with different policies at local, national and European level.
