The twelfth edition of the European Conference on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Urbanism (EESAP 12) and the fifth International Conference on Advanced Construction (CICA 5), will address the issue of the renovation wave. Aligned with the European Commission's strategy, the objective will be focused on enhancing the quality of life for people living in buildings, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting digitalisation by improving the reuse and recycling of materials. How is the architecture and construction industry transforming towards the urgent renovation need of the existing building sector?

We invite all our regulars and those who want to join us in the twelfth edition of our conference to present their proposals, in the light of a different 2030 and 2050. As in the previous editions and given in its academic facet, the conference is especially aimed at students, professionals and researchers.

Since the EESAP8/CICA1 edition, the conference has extended the scope of scientific and technical diffusion to the entire innovative construction sector. Furthermore, it is opened to the business sector, due to their close relationship to meet current social demands on business innovation for achieving higher quality of life.

Once again, the Organizing Committee, a collaboration between CAVIAR Research Group (Spanish abbreviations for Quality of Life in Architecture, UPV/EHU) and ERAIKUNE (Basque Construction Cluster), has opted for innovative and current interest subjects to promote an atmosphere in which professionals, researchers, students and companies will be able to interact and exchange knowledge with the aid of lectures, round-tables, research communications and collaborative innovation workshops (networking). The two conferences will take place during the same days and will share part of the programme and the main lectures. Meanwhile, the research presentations will discuss the specific subjects, while the workshops will promote collaborative projects. The oral presentation sessions will be held in different rooms and the attendees may choose among them.
