High-tech building insulation: EU research project INNOVIP to develop new technologies for long-lasting and cost-effective vacuum insulation panels

Munich – The demands from Brussels are ambitious: by 2050, office and private buildings in Europe must lower their CO2 footprint by around 80 percent, compared to 1990 levels1. Optimal thermal insulation will play a key role in achieving this target. Vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) are particularly promising in this regard, but are still very expensive and difficult to work with. Moreover, to ensure a high level of market acceptance, the lifetime of the panels has to be improved. The INNOVIP project, which has received around Euro 5 million of EU funding, aims to solve these problems through innovative technologies and the development of new materials. The international project team led by the Munich-based Forschungsinstitut für Wärmeschutz e. V. (research institute for thermal insulation, known as FIW Munich) will be working towards a further improvement in the efficiency of the VIPs as well as the development of features such as anti-mould coatings and increased fire resistance.

New EU-funded Project − Psycho-social Support in Crisis Situations

Serious crises – precipitated by events such as airline crashes, school shootings or natural disasters – place enormous demands on everyone involved – victims, emergency services and response coordinators. In addition to physical injury and loss of life, these events can inflict massive psychological stress and traumatize survivors and rescue teams alike. A new EU-funded collaborative project, entitled Psycho-social Support in Crisis Management (abbreviated PsyCris), will attempt to define how to select and provide the sort of psycho-social support that is best suited to different types of situation, and will investigate the impacts of stress and other constraints on crisis managers and their decision-making processes.

BayFOR is committed to a new EU project: More protection for the forests within the Alpine region

Intact mountain forests serve as the basis for ecological equilibrium. They are an essential foundation for both human life and nature.
In view of the anticipated climatic changes as well as the ever-increasing socio-economic and ecological demands being made upon the forests, strategies for the preservation of biological diversity within these forests must be developed.
