DEMO conducts research for the European Union, research institutes and government agencies. Much research focuses on sustainable development, energy saving and the combination of technologies with socioeconomic factors.
Usually, for large-scale research, universities and colleagues-consultants work together within a research consortium. DEMO has extensive experience with the European Union Framework Programs and with Dutch research projects, financed from the government's top sectoral policy (TKI).

Examples of our recent involvement in European research as a leading partner are:
BIM Speed In November 2018 the EU research project BIM Speed started. The project concerns the development and application of BIM for renovation projects in residential construction. The Horizon2020 project BIM-SPEED wants to contribute to this by developing a combination of methods and tools with as core one central information source: the Building Information Model (BIM), a digital representation of a building. This model will be the catalyst for a smarter, more efficient method of thorough renovation for the housing sector. Read more here or go to the website: www.bim-speed.eu
Safeway In September 2018, the EU research project SAFEWAY started with the main objective of keeping European roads and railways robust for the future against climate change and safety risks caused by human intervention and disasters. Why is SAFEWAY important and what does it deliver? Read more here or go to the website: www.safeway-project.eu
Mobistyle As a consortium partner, we kicked off the EU Mobistyle project (EU Horizon2020) at the end of 2016. The overall aim of MOBISTYLE is to raise consumer awareness and motivate behavioural change by providing attractive personalized combined knowledge services on energy use, indoor environment, health and lifestyle, by ICT-based solutions.

Enginency DEMO has participated since the summer of 2016 to the EU project Engenency (EU Horizon2020). Within this two-year project, a tool-set to improve buildings and small districts energy efficiency through integrated new tools and methodologies of inspection, modelling, monitoring, simulation, management and refurbishment advising will be commercialized. Check out www.enginency-project.eu to read more about Enginency.
P2Endure On September 1st, 2016, we started with the project coordination of P2ENDURE, a major EU project within the EU Horizon2020 program. P2Endure promotes Plug and Play product and process innovation solutions for large-scale deep renovation for drastically improving energy efficiency.
