 Summary:
 Construction Cluster DUNDJER from Niš is taking part in an European COSME project (SMART4NZEB, Grant Agreement No. 874425). Near Zero Energy Building – nZEB concept does not seem to be easily applicable yet in many European countries, in particular in the regions targeted by the current presented project (Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Poland). Previous research showed that required investments and optimal integration of the technologies suitable for the construction and/or renovation of buildings at nZEB levels, together with updating the relevant knowledge and skills of all key actors, are among the most important barriers. Moreover, gaining the confidence of building industry and building owners in the real energy performance nZEB and mitigation of actual risks associated with new technologies appear to be strategic issues whose solution could facilitate the uptaking of large investments required in the process of increasing energy efficiency of existing building stock.
The main objective of SMART4NZEB is to create a sustainable collaboration between the involved partners and relevant stakeholders representative for the nZEB market in the selected Central and East-European countries, with a view to develop the involved clusters management excellence and to support interregional partnerships to facilitate the development of competitive products and technological solutions intended for new and existing buildings, which will lead to market penetration of nearly zero energy buildings, related to their production, use and reuse.
The proposed action is in line with the policies and guidelines defined by the Strategic Framework for EU Industrial Policy – Circular and Low Carbon Economy tackling topics like nearly Zero Energy Buildings, sustainable energy, renewables, resource efficiency etc. and supports the goals of the Smart Specialisation Communication on ‘Strengthening Innovation in Europe’s Regions’. This called for stronger strategic inter-regional cooperation, sustainable linkage, and investments between regional ecosystems along clusters.
