How will you contribute?


You will join the Environmental Sustainability Assessment and Circularity (SUSTAIN) Unit of ERIN. SUSTAIN develops knowledge, transferable (software) technologies, practical methods and outreach activities for the simulation and comprehensive sustainability assessment of societal systems. Its final purpose is to foster sustainable eco-innovation, through products and technologies, as well as support sustainability-oriented policy implementation and behavioural change to promote decarbonisation transitions.

Within the SUSTAIN Unit, you will lead the Sustainable Urban and Built Environment (SUBE) research group.

The activities conducted within the SUBE group tackle the whole life-cycle of built assets (i.e. Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations). They mainly consist in the development and deployment of data-driven methods and tools supporting the transition of construction sector towards low-carbon and sustainable built environments (incl. districts and cities), with a strong focus on the digitalisation of processes and information flows (incl. handling Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Digital Twins).


The Urban and Built Environment (UBE) sector has an acknowledged potential to support several key European 2020-2030 policies contributing to Europe target of climate neutrality by 2050, typically the Green Deal, the Renovation Wave, and the new Circular Economy Action Plan recently adopted by the European Commission. 40% of Europe's energy consumption comes from buildings, and they generate 36% of GHG emissions in the EU. With a staggering 97% of the housing stock estimated as being energy inefficient, the building sector is one of the key enablers for achieving low carbon economy goals for 2050.  In Luxembourg, the UBE market is very active, the number of enterprises in the broad construction sector increased by 20.8% between 2010 and 2018. The country has adapted European environmental priorities to its national level and has also set its own ambitious objectives. Therefore, there is an urgency for a transformation for sustainable living, enhanced by the transition to a digitalized sector. Achieving this twin-transition is critical as well is the integration of the sector with other key value chains, considering that automation and digitalization of the building process is one of the emerging winning aspects of the Construction sector and Real estate market.

Your role – Develop, inspire, and lead interdisciplinary and mission-driven research in the urban and built environment sector.

As head-of-RDI group of LIST, you are an internationally recognized professional with proven track record of scientific and technology excellence in the domain of Sustainable Built Environment.

In addition to strengthen and expand the current technological assets at LIST, you will identify and develop lower TRL research topics which will be key to address the future societal and technological challenges in the domain. The final purpose will be to offer decision makers in municipalities, companies and society the means to act and enable the necessary urban transformations towards climate-neutral and smart cities, in particular through the development of national and international collaborations and partnerships.
