7 7 National Technology Platforms (NTPs) European Aims of the NTPs To collaborate with the ECTP in developing a European Vision 2030, a Strategic Research Agenda and Roadmap for research and innovation in the construction sector by contributing national viewpoints. To establish a network for NTPs to collaborate at a European level, creating an opportunity for a wide range of national stakeholders (including industry, national organisations, SMEs and clients) to learn from each other in areas of best practice, research agendas and national goals. To map national regulations and policies relating to construction and identify barriers to innovation in the sector that can be addressed at a European level. To disseminate knowledge on innovation processes by exchanging national experiences of best practice. To establish communication links between other trans-national research activities (such as ERABUILD and other possible collaborative programmes) and the ECTP. To develop a framework for future networking of construction research infrastructure across the EU member states. Contributions from ERABUILD will be considered as very important input regarding previous items.

8 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 8 A working group (WG), reporting to the Support Group, has been established with contact persons from the various NTPs. The European countries listed below are known to have now established National Technology Platforms addressing the future needs of the built environment, and particularly the challenge of innovation and industry transformation in the construction sector. –Belgium –Denmark(Dansk teknologiplatform for byggeriet)Dansk teknologiplatform for byggeriet –Germany –Greece(Hellenic Construction Technology Platform)Hellenic Construction Technology Platform –Norway(Norsk teknologiplattform)Norsk teknologiplattform) –Poland(PCTP - Polish Construction Technology Platform)PCTP - Polish Construction Technology Platform –Slovenia(SGTP - Slovenska gradbena tehnoloska platforma)SGTP - Slovenska gradbena tehnoloska platforma) –Spain(PTEC)PTEC –United Kingdom

9 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 9 Focus areas Underground Construction Cities & Buildings Quality of life Materials Networks Cultural Heritage Six have been established

10 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 10 Focus area outputs Vision 2030 and Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) ( both are available on the ECTP website) Research priorities (in 11 “Fisches”) (not yet publicly available) –Topic areas Technologies for healthy, safe, accessible, and stimulating outdoor environments for all Innovative use of underground spaces New technologies, concepts and high tech materials for efficient and clean buildings Reduce environmental and man made impacts of built environment and cities Sustainable management of transport and utility networks A living cultural heritage for an attractive Europe Improve safety and security within the construction sector New integrated processes for the construction sector High added value construction materials (excluding resource management aspects) Nanotechnologies for materials in construction Technologies and engineering for innovative added value services offered by SMEs in the construction sector

13 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 13 Research priorities - Networks New methods/tools for the comprehensive management of transport and utilities infrastructure in urban and extraurban context to reduce impact on service (timing: E, 20M€) Standards, models and databases to assess, follow and predict the long-term performance of structures and components subject to ageing and deterioration (timing: B, 15 M€) New concepts to extend the life time of structures or increase their capacity, with no reduction in safety and with positive impact on maintenance (timing: M, 20M€) New testing methods for early detection of damages for structures and infrastructures, even buried, with minimal impact on traffic and supply (timing: M, 20M€) Develop, design, build and operate, with new or non-conventional multifunctional materials or with traditional materials of enhanced performances, with low environmental impact, high durability, reduced maintenance and operation costs, and increased comfort for users and citizens (timing: M, 20M€) Integrated life-cycle assessment systems combining cost-efficient and easy-to-maintain sensors, monitoring and performance prediction systems, and covering all stages of construction control, asset management, and optimisation of maintenance (timing: B). ICT and ITS systems to optimise traffic, serviceability and security of networks integrating traffic and transport monitoring and management, information to users, tolling, incident and crisis management (timing :M. Priority to be considered in conjunction with DGTREN and DG ISM). (NOTE – Timing abbreviations: “B” = beginning, “M” = middle, “E” = end, in terms of life of FP7)

14 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 14 Advisory Groups 2 have been established –Clients and Users –SMEs

15 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 15 Advisory Group of Users and Clients - Members Dutch Ministry of Transport EDF – European Disability Forum Eurocities Europa Nostra ICCF - International Construction Clients Forum Danish Association of Construction Clients Network Rail Danish Building Research Institute CSTB SINTEF AGE - the European Older People's Platform CECODHAS - European Liaison Committee for Social Housing GERG - The European Gas Research Group Monumentwacht Nederland UEPC - European Union of Developers and House Builders OWHC - Organisation of World Heritage Cities ICOMOS - International Council on Monuments and Sites / CHEDI - Culture, Heritage & Development – International UNIVERDE Agencies sarl / SUSTCON S.E. (Sustainable & Concrete Construction Technologies, in creation). Europa Nostra Swedish Construction Client Forum

16 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 16 Advisory Group of Users and Clients - Scope To secure that users and societies views and needs are reflected in ECTP To collaborate with ECTP in developing a vision 2030, SRA, JTI and roadmap for research and innovation in the construction sector by contributing with user and society viewpoints To collaborate with ECTP in disseminating the ideas of ECTP to the Commission stakeholders To develop a better framework for future communication links and networking between users and society and construction sector in general

17 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 17 Advisory Group of Users and Clients - Main Tasks Contributing and revising the draft ECTP deliverables from the point of view societal needs Suggest initiatives on and contribute to disseminate the ideas of ECTP to the Commission stakeholders Suggest initiatives on how to improve the framework for communication and networking between users and society and construction sector in general

18 Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives 18 Advisory Group of Users and Clients – Recommendations to SG General –User and client perspectives should be incorporated in the formulation and assessment of research proposals –Research should have the active participation of users and/or client interests in both execution and the dissemination and application of research outputs –Research should address topics and issues of particular relevance to clients and users Proposals should –Be formulated with clear user/client involvement –Be interdisciplinary, in that social scientists should be working alongside physical scientists on issues of management, organisation and implementation –Be assessed by experts who can bring client perspectives to the evaluation –Be steered by groupings that include representatives of client and user interests –Have dissemination and implementation strategies that clearly involve client and user interests Seems to be similar to the way Sustainable Bridges is organised!

To enlarge the number of stakeholders contributing to the change of the construction sector through the developments of new strategies on research and innovation. To identify synergies with other initiatives as other European Technology Platforms, Technical Associations, consortiums involved in past a present research activities. To disseminate EU on-going R&D projects on Construction To promote research proposals for 7th Framework Programme and Eurekabuild (Eureka umbrella on construction).
