    The FRISSBE project will implement new practices at the Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute, ZAG, by attracting and maintaining high quality human resources under the direction of the ERA Chair holder. The project will lead to lasting, sustainable structural changes to achieve excellence at ZAG and spread excellence in the region. Designed structural changes aim to achieve excellence in the field of fire-safe sustainable built environments, modify ZAG’s research and innovation landscape, intensify strong cooperation with industry and result in enhanced competitiveness in attaining projects. Changes will be tested in a new autonomous unit, the FRISSBE ERA Chair, and transferable to ZAG as a whole. Structural and dissemination measures are balanced with testing and improving the concept. Structural measures involve improving the workflow, focusing on project preparation and quality management, building a network with stakeholders, and intensifying cooperation with industry. The concept will be tested on a few levels: testing the research enhancement process, building capacity in applying for competitive funds, and building sustainable relationships with industry. Dissemination activities focusing on two-way cooperation with identified stakeholders will enhance ZAGs network and positively contribute to its attractiveness. FRISSBE will have regional impacts in terms of research, education, and engineering. The team will build a strong interactive ecosystem with the InnoRenew CoE and the University of Primorska, as well as other supporters of the project. Added value of the project is amplifying the capacities of the Fire laboratory co-financed with ERDF funds, ensuring conditions to foster excellent research. The project will yield 3 PhD students and 6 post-doctoral researchers. The long-term sustainability of the ERA Chair will be achieved by combining national and EU research and innovation funding with industry funded research and development.

    The proposed project is about an innovative breakthrough solution in glass façade design for more sustainable architecture and construction. Qbiss Air is the perfect match to European and global needs to improve energy efficiency, cut CO2 emissions, reduce Europe´s dependency on energy imports and provide healthy indoor living and working conditions. Using innovative, patented multi-chamber insulating core, Qbiss Air provides superior thermal insulation, Ucw≥0.3 kWh/m2K, which is at least two times better compared to state-of-the art glass facades. The revolution is fully transparent façade without the use of external sun shades which enables low energy building level 15-35 kWh/m2a without reducing internal comfort. Also, Qbiss Air increases daylighting vs. current glass facades, at the same thermal performance level. These benefits are unmatched by any other glass facades worldwide. Qbiss Air brings high-end overall building performance and benefits through the entire life cycle, including indoor comfort, economic value, environmental friendliness and high quality. For successful European and global market take-up, Qbiss Air needs final development, testing, certification, BIM integration and exploitation activities. Wide commercial potential for Qbiss Air is in new construction, renovation and segments with high-end performance and sustainable requirements. Consortium partners are key supply chain experts and will address all stakeholders – architects, facade consultants, installers, institutions and policy makers during the project and beyond. Qbiss Air innovation is appealing to potential clients, it will enable consortium partner´s turnover growth, create new jobs, strengthen European competitiveness and innovativeness. Qbiss Air will move sustainable glass building construction to a higher level and enable faster achievement of nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB), 2030 Climate and Energy Framework and Roadmap 2050 targets.
