Advanced Tools for Low-carbon, high-value development of historic architecture in the Alpine Space

Overall objective

ATLAS will establish instruments for Low Carbon development of historic buildings and sites and will promote historic buildings retrofit as a task not only for single building owners but for the whole civil society.

ATLAS will foster the exchange of best practice experiences and high level knowledge from all Alpine regions on energy retrofit and sustainable regional development in order to remove uncertainties, quantify co-benefits and socio-economic value, and provide the ground for the integration of historic buildings and sites in low-carbon policies and regional development strategies.

Specific objective

  • To raise awareness on the necessity and benefits of sustainable development of traditional Alpine architecture.
  • To  promote technical and methodological instruments to foster the retrofitting of historic buildings.
  • To bridge the gap between research and practice with existing examples of best practice solutions for an implementation in a transnational context.
