1 European Construction Technology Platform ECTP The Role of ECTP Peter Richner Empa Head of the Swiss Construction Technology Platform
2 ECTP is an industrial driven platform with the contribution of all the stakeholders to mobilise the construction sector A new way to achieve Lisbons goals put forward by the European construction stakeholders and fully supported by the Commission New strategies on R&D&I are being developed to improve the competitiveness of the sector and to satisfy the societal needs.
