EUR 3,5 mil subsidy for TU/e’s ‘sustainable’ Atlas building


The European Union has given the Atlas building on the TU campus a subsidy of EUR 3,5 million in order to make it the most sustainable educational facility in the world. The building must serve as an example in the area of sustainable renovation.

The building will likely to be used more in the near future, but it needs to emit 80% CO2. It will also become a Living Lab. Students, researchers and businesses can collaborate on innovative projects like the generation and storage of energy.

The project’s partners, for example, Architectural students, are going to implement smart solution in the building. Thanks to this subsidy, undeveloped technologies can be implemented in the building. These kinds of technologies have a higher rate of failure, but if they do not work, a number of steps can be eliminated on the road to finding successful technologies.

The Atlas building has already won a number of awards. These include a BREEAM- the so-called Oscar of sustainable buildings.
