- Creation of two platforms that generate competitiveness in the habitat sector
The project aims to create two accelerating platforms for competitiveness in the habitat sector: circular economy and product innovation. The Accelerating Platform of the Circular Economy (PaEC) aims to accelerate the transition of companies from the habitat sector to a more circular economic model, which considers from a holistic point of view aspects of sustainability applied throughout the value chain. The Accelerating Platform of Product Innovation (PaIP) seeks to enhance and accelerate the innovation of habitat products, facilitating the rapid integration in the design process of both aesthetic tendencies and new features. Under both platforms, CENFIM will develop pre-elaborated solutions that allow businesses easy and economical integration in their processes with minimal customization.
Execution period: 01/01/2018 - 31/12/2020
