The renovation of the building stock is today a driver of economic activity and job creation throughout Europe. Most of European universities have incorporated rehabilitation into their core subjects, few have integrated it as a basic pillar and the building sector is lacking a reasonable number of experts in this field. The NextGenerationUE funds are now showing the difficulties of not having enough “Building Rehabilitation Experts “ in Europe.



Overcoming the gap between educational offers and the increasing European need of rehabilitation specialists by defining the new professional profile of “Expert in rehabilitation”.


Creating homogeneous curricula for the new profession in the sector of existing building stock on European level.


Improving specialized training and making the construction sector more attractive to young university students, thus responding to the 2020 Construction Strategy.


Anticipating the needs of professional qualification allowing greater transnational mobility using innovative digital tools (BIM).
