  1. THE PROBLEM • For the implementation of the EPBD and the 20-20-20 targets optimal design strategy is needed for energy efficient buildings by applying an integrated multidisciplinary design approach. • Architects and specialists like mechanical, civil, and HVAC engineers, energy experts and installers should work together in multidisciplinary teams from the start in the design and building process. • However this is still not common THE SOLUTION • All key actors in the total chain, who have to implement these practices, need to have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding: • Clients need to demand a more sustainable and comfortable built environment, • Professionals need to adapt and promote sustainable and energy efficient construction practices through their work, • Construction industry needs to commit to following sustainable construction processes, • Policy makers need to encourage, enable and enforce sustainable construction. • If all these key actors and stakeholders are to fulfil their roles, the educational sector has to provide these implementers with the capacity to deal with these demands, both on the level of students an on the level of professionals.

  2. IDES-EDU OBJECTIVE • To educate, train and deliver specialists, both students and professionals working in the building sector, by following steps: • Curricula and training programs (master course and post graduate course) in integrated multidisciplinary building design, including new methods of teaching that will equip students and professionals to work within a multidisciplinary and interdependent problem-solving framework. • Exchange and collaboration between the students and professionals, involved in these courses to come to a mutual exchange of experience, approach and understanding. • Certification and accreditation of the courses on national level as well frameworks for European certification • An intelligent dynamical and adaptive multimedia teaching portal to make the educational packages available to graduate students and building professionals in Europe at large. • Increasing European awareness, promoting implementation and commitment on Integral Sustainable Energy Design in the Built Environment by promotional campaigns in the building sector as well as by exchange programmes between universities.

  4. EXPECTED OUTCOMES • Courses on Integral Sustainable Energy Design of the Built Environment on Master and on Post Graduate level including a EPBD basic package, 16 theoretical educational packages and a practical multidisciplinary design case and facultative education packages per institute Implementation of these courses in 15 countries • Exchange and collaboration workshops between students and professionals Internal students exchange program • A general framework for training and education building objects to be used by students and post graduate participants in the practical design cases • An intelligent dynamical and adaptive multimedia teaching portal • Recommendations to relevant stakeholders and policy makers on the potential of integrated sustainable energy building design, capacity and potential of the trained experts, derived from the internal and external monitoring and reviews • Dissemination of the action in all EU member states by exchange programme with 60 other universities through whole EU • Elaborated designs for building objects by each educational institute and business plans • Realised training and education objects by HogeschoolZuyd, Heerlen. i.e., a passive house building, an exergy house building, a multifunctional training and education building, and by University of Ljubljana i.e. a Technical Research Centre (JUB)

  5. PROJECT STRUCTURE WP 1: Project management WP 2: Composition and harmonisation of education and training packages and integration of existing material WP 3: Implementation of education and training packages WP 4: Development of training and education building objects WP 5: Intelligent dynamical and adaptive teaching portal WP 6: Monitoring of results WP 7: Specific communication and dissemination WP 8: Common IEE dissemination activities Duration: three years (June 2010 – June 2013)

  6. STRUCTURE OF EDUCATION • Fundamental Educational Packages • Integrated Design Process • Architectural Quality • Sustainable Buildings • Building and Renewable Energy Concepts • Indoor Environment • Outdoor Environment • Market and cost benefit • EPBD • Theoretical Educational Packages • Heating / Cooling • Lighting • Ventilation • Energy Production • Practical Educational Package • Training building objects as cases for implementation of Integrated Energy Efficient Building Design theory and methodology (> work package 4) • Master Thesis


  8. WP4: The District of Tomorrow (case study) • 4 buildings • Increased level of sustainability • energy consumption and supply • material consumption • water consumption and recycling Innovative learning environment: Students> design, engineer and construct the projects. Professionals> monitor, guide and do research.
