Regarding climate protection and energy supply, 2020 is an important year for the EU. By then, ambitious goals should be reached, amongst others, a 20% increase of energy efficiency as well as a 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (reference year: 2005). The GPP 2020 project followed up on these goals and directed its attention to the potential contribution of green public procurement. With its demand, EU's public sector can trigger a leverage effect in favour of energy-efficient and low-carbon goods and services.

The aim of this research project was the development of fundamentally new and intelligent energy supply systems via the façade of existing storey buildings, which allowed a high degree of integration of the active and passive building technology elements into prefabricated façade modules.

The aim of the project is to achieve a coverage of the building energy requirement of almost 100% with the solar technologies by activating and using the thermal storage devices which are part of the structural component.

IFZ war part of a one-year exploratory project "Smart City Frohnleiten", funded by the "Smart City Initiative" of the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund. In this one-year exploratory phase, the aim was to explore possibilities for sustainable urban development in the city of Frohnleiten.

The main objective of FoTRRIS is to develop and introduce new governance practices to foster Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in research and innovation systems. FoTRRIS will, more specifically, focus on new governance practices to co‐design transdiciplinary RRI‐projects that are attuned to societal needs, values and opportunities and that connect and mobilise relevant stakeholders.
