The aim of the two-day RE-BUILT multiplier event held at University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna is to inform the public about the outputs of the RE-BUILT Project, including a panel discussion on "Knowledge Transfer on Sustainable Rehabilitation and Risk Management in Built Environment" and to transfer knowledge in this respect bringing together academics, researchers, designer engineers, architects, urban planners, ecologists, developers and building contractors, experts on risk assessment and management, practitioners of all areas of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Architecture and other related areas, representatives of central and local administration, national heritage conservation authority, promoters in the sustainable rehabilitation and risk management of the built environment.

Experts outside the RE-BUILT network duscuss about the progress made in the knowledge triangle of education, research and business with regard to sustainable rehabilitation and risk mitigation of the built environment, proposing valid solutions to vital questions and problems raised up through the evolution of the project. In the meanwhile, specialists from different fields and backgrounds of building environment and development analyse and assess how technologies, equipments and materials, even mentality, bring evolutionist development of sustainable rehabilitation of the built environment.
