UPWOOD project presented at a conference in Valencia

The UPWOOD project actively participated in the Construction Technology Fair in Valencia (Spain) which took place from May 26 to 28, 2021 and it was held in person at the ETSIE's main conference hall and could also be streamed live via TEAMS. This event represents a key annual event for the sector since it receives every year about 100,000 professionals from more than 140 countries.

In this 35th edition, the programme included a total of 54 technical conferences and discussions, which analysed success cases of entrepreneurial students (Hyperloop, Zeleros, Azalea, BeMore 3D, Clon Digital, SpanS), disruptive Valencian companies in industrialisation, collaborations with the professional association and innovative proposals in the international sphere, among other topics.

An interesting exchange of experiences took place at EXCO 21 with the participation of 57 universities from five continents (from Wuham to Cape Town via Sapporo or Florida), 9 departments and 8 research institutes: the Institute of Concrete Science and Technology (ICITECH); the Institute for Bioengineering and Human Oriented Technology Research (I3B); the University Institute of Heritage Restoration (IRP); the Institute of Materials Technology (ITM); the Institute of Energy Engineering (IIE); the Inter-University Institute for Molecular Recognition and Technological Development (IDM); the Centre for Physical Technologies, Acoustics, Materials and Astrophysics (CTFAMA); the Institute for Integrated Coastal Zone Management (IGIC); the Eduardo Torroja Institute of Construction Sciences, CSIC, and the Institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), L'Aquila (Italy).

Participating in this event was a great experience that enabled a great number of architects, engineers and construction personnel to exchange experiences and to raise awareness of the project.
