HI-SMART online training

As part of the HI-SMART project of the Erasmus+ program, we organize an online course in English. Focus topics are nearly zero-energy buildings and smart buildings.

The course is organized jointly with the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Technical University of Bratislava, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and Energiaklub.

It can be attended by any student, even by a single session, registration not required.

We look forward to seeing you all!
