Spanish pilot leader (pilot 6)

CARTIF Technology Centre is a leading Spanish Applied Research Centre in terms of R&D and technology transfer activities, created in 1994 and formed up by some 200 researchers. Legally established as a Foundation (private non-profit research centre), its main goals are to identify technology needs and develop R& D-based knowledge, to support technological innovation in industry to enhance their processes, systems and products, as well as support public entities (city councils, regional governments) on high impact projects planning and development. CARTIF is a multidisciplinary centre that works in multiple knowledge fields in many economic sectors, including energy, food, industry, construction and infrastructures, health and environment, and many more.

Role in the project

The main research areas involved are energy efficiency, climate and energy policies and cultural heritage. CARTIF is responsible for setting an EU-common approach to conducting digital technical inspections of heritage buildings, to assessing their status and to objectively allocated resources to cover their life cycle. It is also responsible for developing a framework and procedures to assess and monitor cultural heritage buildings in different dimensions. It is also the leader of the Spanish Pilot (pilot 6), the Monastery of Ntra. Sra. Del Prado, in Valladolid.
