Wood and cork are local natural resources whose technical characteristics make them excellent raw materials for construction and rehabilitation.
Wood is a lightweight biological material whose industrial transformation and production processes emit fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its competitors.
Forests actively participate in the fight against global warming. Wood products "trap" the stored carbon. A 5 m³ tree absorbs the equivalent of 5 tonnes of CO₂.
Design, validate and implement an ecological building system based on natural biological materials to improve energy efficiency in public buildings.
Interconnected modular wood and cork insulation board systems can replace traditional systems, generating technical, environmental and socio-economic benefits for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, through the implementation of networks and experimentation joint.
Respect for the
IMIP aims to support the shift to a low carbon economy through smart, sustainable and inclusive growth focused on the construction sector.
The project contributes to the mitigation of climate change by increasing the use of wood and cork products in the construction and rehabilitation of public buildings thanks to its high efficiency.

This collaboration will allow the development of a wood and cork sandwich panel. The proposed pilot actions will demonstrate the benefits of their use by encouraging the replication of solutions and policies.

Innovative Eco-Construction System Based on Interlocking Modular Insulation Wood & Cork-Based Panels
Design, validation and implementation of an ecological construction system based on natural biological materials to improve energy efficiency in public buildings, contributing to the mitigation of climate change.
Modular interconnected wood and cork insulating panel systems can replace traditional systems, generating technical, environnemental and socio-economic benefits for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, through the implementation of networks and joint experimentation.
