Digital and Sustainable Construction 2023

Digitalisation and sustainability are the challenges for the construction industry in this decade. Disruptive technologies present opportunities and risks, for small and medium-sized enterprises, but also for established large corporations. This day will focus on innovation and exchange. Participants will learn about potentially disruptive technologies in the field of Digital Twin, Automated Construction Site and Digital Energy Transition, presented by experts for experts.


Digital and Sustainable Construction is getting closer and we would like to share with you all the details of the event and the updated agenda.

–  1 whole content-rich event about the main challenges and key new technologies the construction industry is facing

–  13 speakers from all over Europe and with different profiles: research, industry and public institutions for a 360-degree view on this construction sector

–  3 main topics: Digital Twin and digital built environment, Innovative Energy and Sustainability, Digital Building Site

–  Theory and practice: concrete showcases to highlight the applications of new technologies developed. These include a modular and automated container.

–  Simultaneous translation service Italian-German and German-Italian.

–  All participants will be offered a coffee break, a business lunch and a networking aperitif.
