The INSITER consortium consists of 13 partners: 10 industrial partners (3 large companies + 7 SMEs) and 4 research organisations. SMEs are the largest group in the consortium; they play a key role, both in leadership of the project as well as in research, demonstration and exploitation. The INSITER project is driven by the industrial partners that are active and successful in their market areas, and thus are able to mobilise their clients and business partners to ensure the market implementation of INSITER results. High-quality research will be guaranteed by the involvement of renown EU research organisations, as well as by the leadership and coordination of industrial/SME partners with extensive experience in performing EU research projects. Together they build the critical mass for sound research and real impacts.
All main geographical regions of Europe (Western, Central, Southern) with their climate-related, regional and cultural characteristics are covered by the INSITER partners that represent 6 EU countries (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Bulgaria, Italy, and Spain). Generalisation and wide dissemination of the knowledge and project results are thus guaranteed. Moreover, there is a strong and proven commitment for teamwork since all partners have been engaged in collaborative projects with each other previously, either in research projects (EU or national projects) or in relevant new construction and retrofitting projects.
