Strategy document / outputs of the ClimArchi.Net project Czech Republic
We have prepared a summary of the findings, available evidence and opinions of experts from the various disciplines who have been involved in the project through discussions, workshops and an international conference.
The Climarchinet expert group is made up of experts who, beyond their own line of expertise and professional interest, deal with obstacles and challenges that stand in the way of sustainable, carbon-neutral construction.
The project cooperation aims at specific results applicable in practice, not only in the Czech Republic.

About the ClimArchiNet project
The project is mainly funded by the EUKI. EUKI is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (BMWK), the mission of which is to encourage cooperation within the EU in terms of further development and implementation of ambitious climate-related policy. Through the EUKI, the stakeholders in the field of climate can learn from each other. The initiative promotes intra-European dialogue, exchange of best practices, awareness raising and knowledge transfer.
The project implementation is ensured through the cooperation between:
Centrum pasivního domu, z.s(CZE) /Passive House Centre
Inštitútprepasivné domy(SK) Institute for Passive Houses
The aim of the project is to identify the current situation and support development of innovative processes, materials and technologies for the preparation and implementation of buildings with very low energy needs throughout their life cycle. Support transformation of the building sector towards carbon neutrality, building adaptation to climate change and social and energy security. More information about the project and its activities in the Czech Republic can be found on the CPD website and on the climarchi.net information platform.
