Consortium

Prof. Dr. Monika Willert-Porada, head of the chair of materials processing at the University of Bayreuth, coordinates the project. The multinational consortium comprises eleven partners from Belgium, Germany, Finland, Italy, Poland, Switzerland and Great Britain. With the University of Bayreuth, there are a total of six representatives from Bavaria. Universities, research institutes and innovative SMEs and large-scale companies work closely together in HarWin in order to address both the scientific and industrial challenges.

In this context, the partners provide expertise from the following areas:

  • Materials science and engineering
  • Mechanical engineering and production technologies
  • Computer simulations are used to facilitate a better understanding of the interaction between environmental influences, material properties, buildings and the associated infrastructure

As a result, the consortium covers the entire value chain that is necessary for developing new windows and facades. The aim is to maintain an active dialogue with an external industrial working group to disseminate project results and to utilize the expertise of other industrial partners outside of the consortium.

The consortium is based on the network formed by the Bavarian Research Association FORGLAS and thus continues the ideas and developments made in FORGLAS on a European level. The University of Bayreuth, Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research (FhG-ISC) and two SMEs, Eckart GmbH and Centrosolar Glas GmbH & Co. KG, were involved in FORGLAS and participated in the development of functionalized, glass-based materials for energy-efficient building technologies.
