H-House is a collaborative research project co-founded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme EeB.NMP.2013-2 (EC contract No. 608893).

The project started in September 2013 and will be carried out over a period of four years. The main purpose is the development of innovative, sustainable façade elements and partition walls based on earthen materials, optimised cementitious materials with modified surfaces and wooden or cellulose materials in order to improve the indoor environment with regards to health and occupant comfort and to increase the energy efficiency of residential buildings.

The complementary consortium consisting of 12 partners makes up a strong team of organisations with specific expertise in the required technical areas. It has a strong industrial dominance with 5 high-tech SMEs and 4 large industries supported by 3 research institutes from 4 EU countries. The coordinator of the project is the CBI Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute.
