German-Chilean Cooperation Network for Sustainable and Modular Residential Construction Systems
International Cooperation Network
The intention of the CONSTRUCtable network is to enhance the collaboration between German and Chilean partners and experts regarding topics such as modular construction, residential construction and wooden construction – at most all of them in combination. Meanwhile, already existing networks and initiatives in Chile will be integrated into the network and strategic partnerships will be signed.
Moreover, the network aims to foster the collaboration between companies and research institutes and the overall technology transfer.
The geographical focus hereby is on the Chilean market. Nevertheless, the realisation of multiplication effects within the region Latin America and especially the integration area Pacific Alliance is planned.
The public economic development agency CORFO is continually developing strategic programmes in order to promote the growth of the sector. The initiative Construye2025 aims at creating a more productive industry by reducing the production costs by 20% until 2030 and decreasing the CO2 emissions by 30% at the same time. The number of sustainably constructed buildings is supposed to increase by 20%.
Another objective is to annually increase the private R&D investments by 20% and to raise the innovation rate of the companies by 50%. All these activities and measures intend to raise the value of the wooden exports in construction by 30% until 2025 as well as to triple the export of design, engineering and consulting services.
Central topics and issues of the network collaboration are:
The CONSTRUCtable network will start its activities in the second half of 2018 and plans to operate at least three years, entering the Chilean market first.
