The Built4People (B4P) partnership brings together the whole value chain to accelerate people-centric innovation for a sustainable built environment - and we want you to be part of it!

Join innovators from across Europe’s built environment sector for the inaugural Built4People Online Stakeholder Forum.

B4P is a co-programmed partnership within Horizon Europe, managed by ECTP and WorldGBC’s Europe Regional Network, together with the European Commission. B4P aims to catalyse the transition to a people-centric, climate-neutral, sustainable and smart built environment that will achieve the goals of the European Green Deal, sustain the ambitious objectives of the Renovation Wave, and align with the bold aims of the New European Bauhaus.

The B4P Partners invite you to join us for this flagship event to hear from inspiring high-level speakers from both the European Commission and the Construction and Built Environment industry.

  • Take a deep dive into aims, activities and impacts of the B4P Partnership
