About TKI Bouw en Techniek
TKI Bouw en Techniek is the Top Consortium for Knowledge and Innovation in building design, construction and technology aimed at a CO2-free and future-proof built environment.
The Netherlands faces top challenges for the built environment. We need to build new homes and transform at least 1 million buildings by 2030. Tens of thousands of bridges, viaducts, tunnels and sluices need to be replaced and renovated. In addition, the use of primary raw materials must decrease by 50% in 2030 and the built environment must be made climate-proof before 2050.
TKI creates an innovation for the design, construction and engineering sector. In order to achieve a liveable, clean and future-proof built environment, innovations are needed. TKI Bouw en Techniek continues the innovation ecosystem that BTIC (Building and Technological Innovation Centre) has set up for the design, construction and engineering sector since 2019. Mission-oriented innovation is central with attention to practice, training and a cultural change. Through a more efficient, bundled and innovative innovation process, innovations can be accelerated and realized on a large scale to solve the major social challenges.
Theme Energy Transition and Sustainability
TKI Bouw en Techniek has a place in the national mission-driven top sector and innovation policy within the energy transition & sustainability theme. Together with TKI Urban Energy, it will enable a rapid transition to a CO2-free and future-proof built environment in complementary working areas
