stec/sus.lab hosts an expert workshop on the topic of digitalization in the building sector
The Energieschweiz project "Business Models for Digital Innovations in the Building Sector” addresses the question of how successful business models for digital technologies should be in the building sector and what role can they play in driving sustainability.
The aim of the workshop was to present the preliminary findings of a report our team has been working on for the past 8 months and engage experts in discussing the current and potential role of digital technologies in the building sector. With a group of experts with academic, industrial and administrative backgrounds, our team was able to collect valuable insights that will be used as deliverables and to guide the remaining work.
During the upcoming months, we plan to conduct a case study-based analysis to explain why certain business models for digital technologies result in successful commercialization. Based on the results, this study will provide suggestions for the economy and policy makers while informing the broader public about digitization in the building sector.
