Projects and research
From digitalization to recycling - the ZAB's projects are as diverse as construction itself
Research for the benefit of small and medium-sized construction companies in Austria is at the heart of the activities of the Zukunftsagentur Bau. The aim is to drive forward research and innovation for the construction industry and make the new knowledge available to domestic companies in a bundled form.
We face up to the current and future challenges of the construction industry
The ZAB is aimed at small and medium-sized companies that do not have the capacity or budget to drive innovation or integrate it into their ongoing operations - digitalization is a good example of this. In order to be successful in the future, construction companies must seize the opportunities offered by digitalization, take up innovations and put them into practice. Only if companies can transfer the knowledge to their operations can real and direct benefits be achieved quickly and sustainably.
The Zukunftsagentur Bau provides support here. It coordinates and networks research projects throughout Austria and disseminates and utilizes the results for the benefit of the construction industry. The ZAB acts as a communicator and multiplier in the innovation process to integrate and coordinate the results from the areas of "Construction Research & Future Topics" and "Digitalization & Innovation" into further training, so that the direct benefits can be transferred to construction companies.
