Through the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement, signed in the city of Oporto in May1992, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway are partners, in the internal market, of the Member States of the European Union.
As a way of promoting a continuous and balanced strengthening of the economic and trade relations, the parties of the European Economic Area Agreement have established a Multiannual Financial Mechanism, known as the EEA Grants, through which Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway provide financial support to Member States of the European Union with the greatest deviations from the European average GDP per capita, which includes Portugal.
EEA Grants Objectives:
To reduce the economic and social disparities in the European Economic Area;
To strengthen the bilateral relations between beneficiary and donor countries.
EEA Grants support to Portugal:
Since the entry into force of the Agreement in 1994, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, as donor States, have contributed to Portugal’s economic and social development.
For the period 2014-2021, the EEA Grants Portugal has a global allocation of 102.7 M€ through which five programs will be supported:
– Blue Growth;
– Conciliation and Gender Equality;
– Active Citizens Fund.
Environment Program and the Construction Sector:
The Environment Program, managed by the General Secretariat for the Environment and Energy Transition, has funding of €24M from the EEA Grants and is based on three areas:
– Promotion of the Circular Economy;
– Decarbonization of Society;
– Appreciation of the Territory.
Within the Call#2 aimed at promoting the Circular Economy in the Construction Sector, 12 projects were financed, one of which was CircularBuild.
This project is aligned with the Environment Program, following the established in the objective “Increase the application of Circular Economy principles in the sectors of use“, by reducing the use of materials and reducing waste production.
The project aims to investigate solutions based on alternative materials for the panels of the prefabricated modular system of CONCEXEC – Arquitetura, Lda., in a perspective of circularity, allowing total reuse of the waste generated, without compromising the building performance in terms of energy efficiency, consequently contributing to the new paradigm of “Zero Carbon Buildings“.
