PROFICIENT responds to the EU-wide trend of self-organised housing process in order to boost the quality and the scale of energy-efficient buildings. Self-organised housing process –through which a group of homeowners carries out new construction and retrofitting projects on a district scale– reflects a raising awareness towards sustainability and the increasing self-managing capability of European society.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no FP7-2012-NMP-ENV-ENERGY-ICT-EeB.
