EU METABUILDING: GROW
3DGREEN-CON: 3D Printing for Green Construction
The project has received support from the European Commission under the framework of METABUILDING GROW program. METABUILDING GROW is an initiative supported by EU Horizon 2020 and the European Innovation Council and SME Executive Agency.
CONSORTIUM: The consortium consisted of 5 organizations involved directly from 5 EU nations. Some organizations have multiple EU locations contributing to the project.
Renotech Oy Finland
XYZ Lab Portugal
UAS Trier Germany
CONSORTIUM LEADER: Renotech Oy
4 Hi-Tech SMEs and 1 University
Countries involved: Finland, Sweden, France, Germany, Portugal
HEAD OF CONSORTIUM AND 3D MATERIALS LEAD: Gaurav Das, Renotech Oy
December 2021–September 2022
Further R&D under this framework will continue until September 2025.
The project aimed to develop terrestrial and marine 3D construction products and uptake of new 3D printing solutions.
This is the European Union’s flagship R&D Program for SMEs.
The consortium’s 3D Printing R&D endeavor already started well before the onset of official EU project. A total of 15+ products will be developed by September 2025.
3D Building materials recipe development. Development of smart materials with properties which are bio-receptive and self-healing. 3D Printing of items. Joint Analysis of new materials using 3D scanning, microscopy etc. Joint scientific publication. Industry-academia knowledge transfer activities. Providing industrial lecture series.
Developing robotic arm-based 3D concrete printer system.
