Research and innovation driving transformative change.

Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050, Europe needs to modernize the approach to engineering design, to ensure an inclusive ecological transition.

Research and innovation will play a central role in accelerating and navigating the necessary transition to a climate-neutral engineering.

This Phd School aims to spread among young researchers the green transition in the field of civil, architectural and environmental engineering.
