"Knowledge transfer in the building trade" is the name of a joint research project being conducted by seven partners from the fields of research, industry and regulatory framework to speed up the practical use of new innovative building materials. The project, supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is part of the BMBF materials research programme and thus of the Federal government's new high-tech strategy. The overriding aim is to actively promote innovative developments on future-oriented markets in Germany. The building industry is one of these.
The partners are working together on the active utilisation of the research results obtained in the context of the announced BMBF promotion schemes "NanoTecture - Nanotechnology in the building trade" and "HighTechMatBau - New materials for urban infrastructures". The purpose of the above-mentioned supportive measures is to promote projects aimed at developing new, innovative materials and substances for practical building applications.
