The AACHEN BUILDING EXPERTS e. V. (ABE), the Aachen Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) and experts from RWTH Aachen University informed at the end of November 2017 in Aachen, Germany, on how universities can support the construction industry with product innovations. Building and building materials companies, architects and planners had come to take advantage of this offer and the opportunity to exchange ideas.

Dr. Jens-Christian Winkler, TFI Aachen GmbH, gave a lecture on safe handling of the EU Construction Products Regulation. Eric Spinnräker, Chair of Energy Efficient Construction (e3D), spoke on "Research - Ideas, Innovations and Products". Dr. Andreas Koch, expert for textile construction at the Institut für Textiltechnik (ITA) of RWTH Aachen University, informed about financial support opportunities in the building industry.

Finally, questions from participants and networks were on the agenda. Since August 2016, the Aachen network has been dealing with topics such as innovative building materials, digitalization and securing skilled workers in the sector.
