Efficient Structures


Project description

The Efficient Structures project seeks to promote the low carbon requirements of society through the material, energy and emission efficiency of structures. The development of design and manufacturing of efficient structures leads to more cost-effective products, enabling competitive manufacturing costs with low ecological footprint. In the project design and manufacturing methods for technically and economically efficient structures are developed.
The strategic choices of smart specialization in Oulu Region are the base for the Efficient Structures project. The project is supported by specialty steel expertise and engineering expertise in the utilization of new materials and in the weight reduction of the structures.
