Centro Habitat

Involvement in the project

The Habitat Cluster is a recognized European gold label competitiveness cluster, representing the construction value chain, and so is particularly able to help UAVR in the specific role of dissemination of the project activities WP8 (Communication and dissemination plan) at national level and throughout its European contacts, as well as in the involvement of potential stakeholders (market queries, capacitation, workshops) in the project actions WP7 (Market analysis, exploitation and replicability of circular economy models).
The Sustainable Habitat Cluster brings together companies, municipalities, R&D centers, business associations and other entities that are committed to sustainability as a motto for Innovation and Competitiveness.

The Sustainable Habitat Cluster, recognized by the Portuguese government is a very broad cluster since it covers the Habitat value chain involving areas from the extractive sector to processing of building materials, as well as construction and rehabilitation and also other activities involving suppliers of goods and equipment for the built environment (Habitat).

The entities forming this Cluster intend to create synergies for the development of new products, techologies and building systems, a new pratice in designing space and surrounding areas, leading to an attitude of innovation through the built environment sustainability, aiming to generate competitiveness.

This cluster has adopted the subject of Sustainability as a dynamic factor to its strategic development, aiming to contribute for a more “Sustainable Habitat”.

Sustainability is the driving force for innovation and the desired competitiveness of the cluster members, with impact on economic, social and environmental aspects.

While, in the national market, the strategic interventions are mainly related to rehabilitation, conservation and qualification of the built heritage, in the international market, especially in developing countries, the prospect is related to construction in general (buildings, cities, infrastructures). In both markets, the statement of a specialization in sustainable construction by companies and other cluster agents aims to be an element of differentiation, generating factors of international competitiveness.
