NOBATEK/INEF4 favours calls from the Public-Private Partnership for Energy Efficient Buildings (PPP E2B), supervised and financed by the EU research and innovation program HORIZON 2020.
Over the last few years, however, the IET has successfully applied in other project areas, such as Smart Cities, Water Management or Nature-Based Solutions.
NOBATEK/INEF4 is also involved in establishing the RD&I strategy for the construction sector in Europe. In 2015, Germain Adell, then director of Innovation & Valorisation of NOBATEK/INEF4 joined the Steering Committee of the ECTP among a college of research centres and universities.
Re-elected in 2017, he will notably pilot a study on the creation of a TRL scale specific to the field of construction. Along with this re-election, NOBATEK/INEF4 also joined the network for national construction platforms and became the media and information relay for the ECTP in France.
