"Symposium Building the Future. Building is innovative" now online

How can the construction industry become more sustainable?

The response was great: Over 300 people took part in the online symposium of "Symposium Building the Future. Building is innovative" online symposium. For all those who were unable to follow the event live or would like to watch it again, there is a recording available. Speakers from the fields of research, building practice, companies and initiatives discussed the topic of how building can become more sustainable.

The topic seems to strike a nerve: In the Stuttgart region, almost as many people are employed in the construction industry as in vehicle manufacturing. But the industry faces many challenges, such as digitalization, entry into the circular economy, resource efficiency and climate-friendly building materials. How can the transformation in the construction industry be boosted?

These are the topics discussed during the symposium:

  • Talk 1 - Transformation in construction
  • Talk 2 - Hybrid construction elements
  • Talk 3 - Circular Economy

Symposium “Building the Future" was a joint event of

  • M4_LAB of the HFT Stuttgart in the context of the federal-state initiative "Innovative Hochschule".
  • International Building Exhibition 2027 StadtRegion Stuttgart GmbH (IBA'27)
  • Wirtschaftsförderung Region Stuttgart GmbH (WRS), partner of HFT Stuttgart within the project M4_LAB
