The main goal of the HyLAB project is the realization of a laboratory for the hygrothermal analysis of building materials and components and its start up. The laboratory will be formed by three parts: 1) HyLAB Materials, dedicated to the characterization of building materials in laboratory 2) HyLAB Monitoring, dedicated to the verification of the performances of building components on site 3) HyLAB Simulations, dedicated to the calibration of numerical models and to the evaluation of technical and design solutions. Hygrothermal analysis plays an essential role in the prevention of moisture related damages in buildings, especially in the context of the energy retrofit of historic building, a topic that will become more and more relevant in the next years. HyLAB will create at the NOI Techpark a competence center currently missing in Italy. At the local level HyLAB will address mainly designers and producers acting in the construction sector. Moreover, HyLAB will support the creation of collaborations and synergies between Eurac and other institutions operating in the field of energy efficiency in South Tyrol and it will bring knowledge and innovation. HyLAB aims to become a laboratory with international reputation and to collaborate with universities and research centers in the field of energy retrofit of historic buildings, giving visibility to the NOI Techpark and to South Tyrol.

Eurac Research logo

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
