Digital construction: launch of the Tech4EUConstruction Cluster by three Horizon Europe projects aiming at human-centric technologies in construction

EBC is delighted to announce that three EU-funded projects, namely BEEYONDERS, RoBétArmé, and HumanTech, have joined forces to form a collaborative cluster aimed at addressing key challenges in the EU construction sector by developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies: the Tech4EUConstruction Cluster.

These three projects will work together to enhance the digitalization and automation of the industry, with the goal to increase safety, improve the attractiveness for workers, stimulate EU’s sovereignty in the industry, and reduce the need for technological imports.

EBC is a project partner of BEEYONDERS and HumanTech, both aiming to overcome major challenges in the European construction sector by achieving significant advances in cutting-edge technologies.

BEEYONDERS seeks to address the challenges hampering the EU’s competitiveness in the construction sector by producing, commercializing, and integrating beyond the state-of-the-art solutions into real construction scenarios. To do so, the project will make extensive use of AI, automation, and digitisation. For its part, HumanTech aims to establish a safe, rewarding, and digitally enabled work environment that caters to the requirements of highly skilled construction workers and engineers, while simultaneously enhancing workforce well-being, productivity, and resource efficiency. Additionally, the sister project RoBétArmé aims at delivering a Human-robot collaborative construction system for shotcrete digitalization and automation through advanced perception, cognition, mobility and additive manufacturing skills.

The Tech4EUConstruction cluster has created a joint visual identity and logo with the aim of strengthening collaboration and facilitating recognition by key stakeholders. This represents a shared vision and commitment towards the creation of breakthrough technologies supporting technological sovereignty in construction.

Active in the liaison activities of BEEYONDERS and HumanTech, EBC is excited about this partnership and its potential to contribute to bridge the gap between innovation and on-site professionals in the European construction sector. This united effort represents a step forward in shaping the future of construction and strengthening Europe’s competitiveness in the global market while propelling a more competitive and sustainable industry.
