3-5 June 2020 / Aix-les-Bains, France
Latest SP2020 announcements:
Research & Innovation in construction

Goodbye "EeB cPPP", and hello "Built4People"
On 3rd June, SP2020 will host a high-level event organized by [ ECTP ]( ) – the European Construction, built environment and energy efficient building Technology Platform – to celebrate the completion by the end of 2020 of the Energy-efficient Buildings contractual Public-Private Partnership ([ EeB cPPP ]( )).
It will feature presentations from the European Commission (DG Research and Innovation, DG Energy), the ECTP – Alain Zarli (ECTP Secretary General), as well as key industrial actors involved in the management of the Partnership, such as ACCIONA – Javier Bonilla (chair of the ECTP Energy-efficient Buildings Committee), Bouygues – Emmanuel Forest (ECTP President), and EDF – Antoine Aslanides (EeB cPPP Co-Chair). Selected EeB projects will showcase presentations of their key achievements in the context of the EeB cPPP.
The event will conclude with a first outline and discussion of [ Built4People ]( ), the new research & innovation partnership on ‘people-centric sustainable built environment’ which is expected to exploit the outcomes and extend the scope and objectives of the EeB PPP. Upon potential agreement under discussion from the EU representative instances, this new partnership is to be implemented under the Horizon Europe programme (2021-2027).

The [ SDIA ]( ) - Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance e.V. - is an inter-industry association enabling collaboration in sustainable, zero impact digital infrastructure that is accessible to the next-generation of innovators. The SDIA strives to bring together companies, individuals and governments to advocate and realize key initiatives such as heat-reuse, smarter power consumption and efficient use of resources.    
New CfP topic: Sustainable Digital Infrastructure
This year, we invite contribution proposals on building and city sustainability:

Circular Economy Digital Twins Building-Integrated Photovoltaics Local Energy Communities
We're also including a special thematic focus on:
Sustainable Digital Infrastructure
The SDIA will host a track on the opportunity of creating a net-positive digital infrastructure. As one of the key topics on the European agenda, SDI combines digitalisation, climate protection, and data sovereignty of the new presidency. 
As the 4th industrial revolution - digitalization - is accelerating, we face a once in a decade opportunity. For the first time we can decouple economic growth from resource consumption. The digital economy can be the first one that creates economic value without consuming exponentially more minerals, more energy, and other planetary resources. In this track we will explore the various opportunities from heating districts and greenhouses with data centers, to using digital infrastructure as energy-flexibility systems and how the emerging European computing infrastructure will look like. We will demonstrate that the digital economy creates a viable & needed opportunity for sustainable digital infrastructure.
