The AdMaS Center succeeded in CAMEB in October 2018, part of the programme to support applied research, experimental development and innovation of the National Competence Center, which aims to promote long-term collaboration between the research and application sphere and to strengthen the institutional base of applied research.

The motivation for the creation of the CAMEB center is the decline, resp. the reduction of non-renewable natural resources, both material and energy, and the impact of this phenomenon on construction. The current trend of massive energy savings in building operations brings significant improvements in operating energy, but the material and energy intensity of construction is so steep. CAMEB therefore associates partners with such competencies that will enable better use of resources in the construction industry in the spirit of circular economy principles, particularly in the areas of materials, structures, indoor environment and energy and water management. These areas will be supported by modern technologies in the field of digitization, optimization, modeling and efficient process management.

The partners of the project are the Czech Technical University in Prague, the Technical University of Liberec, the Mendel University in Brno and 26 private sector companies.
