Digital tools for synergies identification
The objective of this third multidisciplinary workshop was to learn about some of the current digital tools which allow to concentrate data and visualize materials flows available in a territory and that can therefore serve as powerful tools to promote the creation of synergistic networks within the construction sector.
The third FISSAC Living Lab was organised as a free side event at the construction fair BBConstrumat 2019 and gathered, like in previous editions, experts who represented different professional activities within the construction value chain (designers, architects, manufacturers, associations, universities, construction companies, consultancy companies, etc.).
After the presentation of several tools (MatMap, Escrapalia, RecursResidu, and the Fissac Platform) the workshop concluded with an open debate: What would the different potential users expect from an ideal platform?, which features should it include?, what kind of data should it show?, who should manage such a platform?

ACCIONA participated in the WCEF 2019 that took place in Helsinki, Finland in the beginning of this month. The World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) is the global initiative of Finland and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra that lasted three days (3-5 June 2019).
Edith Guedella and Anurag Bansal from ACCIONA presented FISSAC and Paperchain, the two different EC (European Commission) funded H2020 Research and Development projects. Both these projects are been coordinated by ACCIONA, and are aligned with EC and ACCIONA’s strategy towards implementing Circular Economy Principles in different industries, including Construction and Infrastructure.
During this event, the FISSAC project was showcased, at a side session organised by EASME at the EC’s stand, through interactive workshop with project pitches, live pools, discussion tables. The objective of this presentation was to disseminate the project, its key outcomes and lesson learned, and to exchange the views of different participants.
The partners of the FISSAC Consortium got together in Bilbao, wonderfully hosted by Tecnalia, to discuss about the results achieved over the last 6 months, sharing the ongoing challenges and co-designing the activities for the remaining 8 months before the end of the project.
Next 4 and 5 June 2019, FISSAC Project partners will gather in Bilbao, Spain, for the 8th FISSAC General Assembly.
Hosted by Tecnalia, the General Assembly will include a first session dedicated to the monitoring of the project’s progress, considering all the Working Packages. Later on, a number of workshops will be carried out.
To further enrich the assembly, project partners will also have the chance to visit the laboratories of Kubik and Tecnalia, where innovation starts. Moreover, they will head to Zestoa, to look at one of the pilots implemented.
