HIPIN Month 41 Project Meeting

The final project meeting was held on held on March 11, 2015 at Envipark in Turin. The data collected from the demonstrators installed at Envipark in Turin was reviewed. The exploitation potential of 5 main Exploitable Results coming out of the project and the techno-economic analysis and LCA Ecoprofiles of the HIPIN products was also discussed. The feedback from the project PTA was positive, highlighting that there several reasons to hope for positive outcomes coming from the project.


Stakeholder Workshop

A stakeholder workshop was held on 10 March 2015 in Turin, on the premises of Environment Park (Envipark). Organised in collaboration with the ECOSEE project (http://www.eco-see.eu), it brought together more than 30 representatives from companies and research organisations interested in learning more about the energy efficient building materials developed in the two projects.

In addition to presentations from both projects, the workshop involved a visit to the HIPIN demonstrators which are on-site at Envipark and an opportunity to engage in one to one discussions with the consortium partners. The workshop also provided an opportunity for the consortiums for discussions potential end-users but also to exchange experiences with representatives from other EU-funded projects in the Energy Efficient Building cluster who attended the workshop.

Overall, it was clear that the exploitable results of the HIPIN project raised a lot of interest among stakeholders, given the good thermal insulation benefits of aerogel and its possible use in paint, plaster, and panel products for insulation benefits.
