COTEC Innovation Summit 2020

The second edition of the COTEC Innovation Summit 2020 is about to happen. C5Lab joins again this initiative that will take place on the 1st and 2nd of October 2020.

This digital conference, oriented towards an audience of business leaders, policy-makers, academics and students, will anticipate and debate the possibility of the yet vague concept of Europe’s “Industrial Renaissance”, converging strategies of backshoring, 4.0 technologies and innovation. “Industrial Renaissance” can be broadly defined as a process of accelerated change, propelled by geopolitics and globalization, technologies from the 4th industrial revolution, ambitious political goals of ecological transition, having the industrial sector as the essential core in a competitive and sustainable economy.


We colab to provide sustainable solutions

The c5Lab makes use of a set of decentralized laboratories, which includes all the resources and equipments of the already existing laboratories, as part of an integrated network with complementary skills.

Based on a holistic approach, the c5Lab addresses the several links of the production chain: alternative raw materials, CO2 capture and reuse, synthetic fuels, energy efficiency, eco-efficient cements, eco-efficient cementitious materials, etc.


C5Lab integrates a set of decentralized laboratories

The c5Lab aims at being an R&D platform that will integrate many of the resources already available in the structures of its partners, avoiding duplication of structures and extra burden.


Our projects focus on a carbon neutral society

Our researches aims at contributing to a carbon neutral society by developing solutions for CO2 Capture & Use, synthetic fuels production, energy efficiency, low carbon clinker families and eco-efficient cements and cementitious materials, as well as new sustainable solutions for concrete construction.
