Owners and managers of public and private high-rise and non-historic buildings are invited to apply by 12η August 2022.
The project funded by the European Commission e-SAFE H2020 has published a call for proposals to public and private entities for access to free, personalized building renovation tips. The initiative aims to support non-historic building owners and managers to begin the renovation process, identifying the best measures, procedures and financial support plans to achieve energy-efficient and earthquake-proof buildings.
The e-SAFE consortium, consisting of 12 partners, is currently developing a ready for purchase, versatile system of radical renovation of buildings, which includes technological, functional, aesthetic, financial and economic aspects for buildings in seismogenic regions of Europe.
"Our mission is to make building renovations that focus on both energy efficiency and seismic safety accessible to those who need them most, and to simplify the renovation process," says Giuseppe Margani, e-SAFE Coordinator and Building Professor Construction at the University of Catania, Italy.
"We are excited to be able to test the e-SAFE methodology in real buildings. "Even if you do not intend to renovate immediately, this is a great opportunity to prepare the process so that when the time comes, you can make renovation decisions with the confidence that they will benefit you in the long run."
The e-SAFE project will provide renovation and support advice to two applicants, who will be owners or managers public or private bodies, with high-rise, non-historic buildings located in seismic areas of Europe and in need of renovation.
The first step in the application process is to complete the form on the e-SAFE website. Only two cases will be selected. The call for applications ends on 12 August.
Among the benefits that applicants will receive are the following:
- Preparation of a three-dimensional study of the building,
- Carrying out energy control, energy analysis and simulations of structural elements of the building,
- Elaboration detailed plan of architectural, energy efficient and seismic renovation solutions resulting from a co-planning process with the active participation of the tenants,
- Suggestions attractive and sustainable funding programs according to the needs of the applicant body and the specific socio-economic conditions,
- Increased visibility at local and European level
"We warmly encourage all potential candidates to apply," said Professor Margani. "This is a rare opportunity to access the amazing benefits of a publicly funded research project."

E-SAFE is a 4-year project, funded by the European Commission, in the field of activity of Horizon 2020, consisting of 12 partners from 8 countries. Our goal is to develop a multi-purpose renovation system for buildings, including technological, functional, aesthetic, financial and economic aspects for non-historic buildings in seismic areas of Europe.
