Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol), Italy. Founded in 1992, Eurac Research is an interdisciplinary center that aims to generate applied research, provide scientific support, and act as a bridge between science and society. In Eurac Research there are 11 research institutes, 5 interdisciplinary centers and Labs on different areas as climate change, renewable energy, social sciences, health and biodiversity. Institute for Renewable Energy focus on renewable energy technologies, sustainable energy systems and development of technical innovative solutions for climate neutrality, with several research groups on high energy efficient buildings, historic buildings, heat pumps and solar thermal technology, energy generation by photovoltaics system and e-mobility. Within the Institute there are laboratories (Hydrothermal Testing Lab, Façade system Interaction Lab, Heat Pumps Lab, and a large solar laboratory, PV Lab and thermal energy storage) and testing facilities which enables them to conduct cutting-edge research on renewable energy technologies.
Architect graduated at Department of Architecture in the University of Florence, and master’s degree “CasaClima” at the Free University of Bolzano. Specialized in high energy buildings, bioclimatic concepts and renovation strategies for refurbishments and new buildings. She works at the Institute for Renewable Energy, at Eurac Research, as project manager for local and EU innovation projects on innovative solutions, processes, and methods to boost the energy efficiency in buildings sectors and achieve the climate neutrality. She follows the criteria of the New European Bauhaus (together, sustainable and beautiful) and is a co-founder of “NEB of the mountains” networks.
PhD in sustainable energy and technology. Specialized in evaluation of energy performances of buildings and hygro-thermal analyses of the building envelope. He works at the Institute for Renewable Energy at Eurac Research. His research area is in the field of energy efficiency in buildings as well as high comfort indoor conditions to the users, with a focus on advanced envelope system, modular system and prefabrication technologies, both for new and existing building.
