    The construction industry plays a strategic role in the EU economy, accounting for 9% of gross domestic product (GDP) and 18 million direct jobs. While often considered a traditional and low-tech industry, construction industry is undergoing important transformation processes, driven by the introduction of new technologies, greater attention to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. This transformation towards a smarter and greener construction industry requires new collaborations along and across the value chains and with different sectors and the integration of new service providers. It implies to adopt smart materials, intelligent systems, sustainable and digital tools, processes, products and services. Building sustainably means building responsibly by reducing waste and helping preserve the environment in the construction activities.
