At present the construction sector in the European Union involves excessive consumption of resources and energy in the construction of civil infrastructures and buildings. Therefore, the incorporation of innovation into its processes must be promoted and technological development must be generated from the logic of sustainability and quality as added value and a principle of prevention of environmental degradation.
Thus this project is working on the revival and preservation of traditional building techniques and materials with sustainability criteria, the prediction of damage in reinforced concrete structures and the promotion of the use of innovative techniques in road surfaces, thus contributing to the sustainable preservation of civil infrastructures
in the EUROACE area.

This project promotes the development of a battery of non-destructive techniques, such as geophysical and surface prospecting, remote sensing or aerial photography, in order to generate extensive knowledge of complex archaeological sites. The search systems used provide an effective means of optimizing resources and strengthen the multidisciplinary nature of the research.
As well as contributing to historical analysis and methodological advance, these results provide elements for presenting the heritage to the public, improving their understanding and enjoyment. This increases a cultural offer that could boost the economic development of the communities that live in daily contact with them.
