"The SSHARE project will develop innovative self-sufficient envelope for buildings aimed at net zero energy, thereby contributing to the European technology and creativity through joint R&D and R&I multisectoral and international cooperation activities supported by knowledge sharing. Envelope is a combination of two breaking through technologies HUNTER-Humidity to Electricity Convertor and Advanced Radiant Panel for Buildings that will cool or heat the building depending on the time of year imitating perspiration of living beings using only atmospheric humidity as both thermal and electric energy supply. Successful realization of the project is assured by implementing a coordinated network of knowledge sharing in materials science, chemistry and mechanical engineering; by solidifying the state-of-the-art understanding in nanoelectronics and energy efficiency, and by applying bottom-up nanoengineering approaches via an international and inter-sector collaboration of highly qualified researchers from Portugal, Spain, Ukraine, Belarus, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and intergovernmental organization Joint Institute for Nuclear Research Russian Federation. Both technological (panels fabrication) and fundamental (renewable energy) issues will be assessed by this multidisciplinary consortium. The successful realization of the project will lead to substantiated principles for the development of a new generation of building materials and hence to the creation of net zero building. Within the SSHARE project, the consortium will implement research/innovation activities by means of secondments and organizing training courses, workshops and summer schools aimed at sharing knowledge, acquiring new skills and developing the careers of the consortium members. Sharing the culture of research and innovation, the SSHARE project will allow applying recent advancements in nanotechnology science and mechanical engineering to address ""Plus Energy Houses"" EU 2050 concept."
