Partnering opportunity

Partner sought for the co-development of a project related to energy efficient renovations in the construction/building sector.


A Greek research organisation has been developing a sustainable and energy efficient solution for renovations in the building/construction sector. The team seeks companies or research organisations related to energy-efficiency for the co-development of the project under a joint venture or a technical cooperation agreement. Research cooperation agreement is also envisaged.

Partner sought

The Greek organisation is looking for partners (relevant companies and professionals such as engineers, architects, specialists concerning energy efficiency etc and research organisations) with relevant expertise in the field of energy efficiency in construction/building sector. More precisely, potential partners could be SMEs working in the field of environmentally friendly and energy efficient renovations of buildings or university/research centres departments experienced in this field. Furthermore, ICT companies with relevant experienced are needed too. The Greek organisation is seeking partners as mentioned above who might be interested in jointly developing the CIRS under a joint venture or under a technical cooperation agreement. Additionally, research cooperation agreement with companies or research institutions interested in setting up a project consortium is also envisaged.


The Greek team of a research organization established in 2005. The team focuses on the promotion of entrepreneurship for everyone. The organization's main activity is the implementation of projects under HORIZON 2020 and ERASMUS+ programmes. The team has been developing a complete instrument package and suite (CIRS) for holistic building scanning, evaluation, continuous upgrade renovations proposals and monitoring – InnovaBuild/IBD characteristics. IBD project will demonstrate the impacts listed below using quantified indicators and targets wherever possible: -Primary energy savings triggered by the project (in GWh/year); -Investments in sustainable energy triggered by the project (in millions of Euros); -High energy performance in the renovated buildings; -Measurable cost reduction compared with a typical renovation (i.e. a renovation that meets current minimum requirements of existing building regulations) or major energy performance improvement at comparable cost; -Reduction of time needed on site for renovation works by 20% compared to current national standard practice; -Demonstration of the effectiveness and replicability of the proposed solutions to lead to an increased rate of renovation for defined building typologies in several districts/cities/regions; -Reduction of the greenhouse gases emissions (in tons of CO2-eq/year) and/or air pollutants (in kg/year) triggered by the project. The target of the project is to ensure faster and more cost-effective deep renovations, resulting in high-energy performance, design and construction methods with low embodied energy and on-site works organization, lower cost of energy retrofitting, taking into account any architectural constraints. Through the CIRS information at hand the renovation teams will be able to perform targeted interventions into buildings and establish a symbiotic equilibrium between them and their tenants, bearing in mind the above-mentioned targets. The Greek organisation seeks companies or research organisations who might be interested in cooperating and jointly developing the CIRS under a joint venture or under a technical cooperation agreement. Research cooperation agreement with partners willing to create a project consortium is also envisaged.

Advantages and innovations

Through this project, the partners will opt to achieve higher rates of renovation that reduce energy use and decarbonize the building stock, in order to meet long-term climate and energy targets.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
