The 4th ZERO-PLUS progress meeting took place in Chania, Greece on the 21st and 22nd of September 2017. The meeting was hosted by the project partner TUC (Technical University of Crete). The main focus of the meeting was on the status and planning for the construction of the case studies but also on the integration of the ZERO-PLUS technologies in the design.

The meeting was attended by two members of the External Advisory Panel (EAP) coming from both academia and the construction industry (University of Palermo and Bouygues Construction). The members of the EAP provided their interdisciplinary view of the project progress and the construction planning.


ZERO-PLUS case studies workshop


A full day workshop dedicated to the ZERO-PLUS case studies was organised in parallel to our fourth progress meeting. The workshop took place on the 20th of September in Chania, Greece, and was hosted by project partner TUC.

The workshop helped:

  • Evaluate the incorporation of the innovative technologies in the design of the settlements
  • Evaluate the energy management, storage, and monitoring system of each settlement
  • Identify risks in the realization of the case studies.

A panel of four distinguished external experts from both higher education institutions and from the private sector participated in the workshop providing a critical review of the realisation progress and planning.


Exploitation Strategy Seminar for the ZERO-PLUS project


An Exploitation Strategy Seminar, offered by the Support Services for Exploitation of Research Results (SSERR), was organised in parallel to our third progress meeting. The meeting took place on 15th of March 2017 in Palermo, Italy, and was hosted by project partner ARCA. During the Seminar the ZERO-PLUS partners and the META-group expert worked together and identified:

  • key exploitable project results;
  • project partners that will invest time and effort in each result;
  • intentions of each partner with regard to the dissemination and use of all results;
  • conflicts of interest and weaknesses in the exploitation path/plan.
