C-MADE is a newly formed research Centre of University of Beira Interior (UBI), developing fundamental and applied research in the fields of materials, building and construction technologies. C-MADE research activities are centralized on the development of innovative building products and solutions, more durable, having better mechanical behaviour, being environmentally sustainable and energy efficient.
Thus, the focal point of C-MADE is the research on “environmentally sustainable building materials and technologies”.
Currently, the centre is very committed to innovation in specific domains, as follows:
a) sustainable new binder-based composites,
b) technologies for sustainable construction,
c) mechanical behaviour and durability of materials,
d) technologies for building energy saving and rehabilitation,
e) high-value use of wastes,
