Abstract

Within a collaborative research project relating to solar technology and specifically to BIPV, building integrated systems, an important part awaits the effective communication of research results to overcome non technological barriers and the transfer of training and information to a wide range of users from the final user, to the world of professionals and architects who have to implement new architectural systems, to the industry subject to innovation up to the new generations, students and professors which should be aware of innovative and new market developments and the vanguard of innovation. In this context, new communication strategies, tools and above all new methods of education and training can be implemented in a new way, recognizing an added value in the role of ICT, information and communication technologies to stimulate a discussion on the important role of solar energy in buildings and to promote two-way exchange of knowledge, from research to public and from public to research process. Computer-mediated activities were used in an interactive and participative Webinar organized in the framework of the communication and dissemination activities of the European project Construct PV. Real-time tools has been implemented to stimulate and encourage participation and, in turn, also to gather useful feedback for the research project. This paper presents an applied example of successful collaboration to create greater links between research and education, strengthening the knowledge and competence of relevant stakeholders in solar energy.
