InnoRenew CoE International Conference 2022 (IRIC2022)

For the 4th consecutive year, the InnoRenew CoE and University of Primorska, organized the InnoRenew CoE International Conference 2022 (IRIC2022). This year more than 60 international experts and scientist gathered to discuss about buildings and materials for a sustainable future.

The main theme of IRIC2022 was “Rethinking buildings and materials for a sustainable future”. The keynote address was given by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Thomas Brudermann, a professor at the University of Graz with the doctoral degree in psychology. He spoke about rethinking the role of individual decision for a sustainable future.

During four thematic sessions participants could listen to several presentations about environmentally friendly and energy-efficient materials and practices to improve the built environment, state-of-the-art solutions for building design and assessment, built environments for well-being and how to bridge the gap between research and society.

Moreover, a special workshop in the framework of the European Year of Youth entitled “Wood material flows modelling: issues, challenges, and a better future for our youth” was organized, while Dr. Esakkiammal Sudha Esakkimuthu held a workshop in the framework of her MSCA project about renewable material composite preparation and she showcased the modified lignin nanoparticles for composite and bio-aased/Cu packaging applications products.
