The National Technical University (NTUA) is the oldest and most prestigious technological educational institution of Greece, and has contributed unceasingly to the country’s scientific, technical and economic development since its foundation in 1836. The scientific staff in the schools, together with post‐graduate researchers and apart from their teaching and related educational activities, conduct research work assisted by post‐graduate students and a considerable number of external collaborators.

The Laboratory of Heterogeneous Mixtures & Combustion Systems (NTUA.HMCS) that participles in REHOUSE belongs to the School of Mechanical Engineering. It is an accredited laboratory established by Government Decree in 2002. It is served by 5 faculty members (1 professor, 4 post-doc teaching and research staff), 6 post-doc research associates, 7 doctoral candidates, ca. 15 graduate students on an annual basis and three members of staff for administrative and technical support. NTUA.HMCS has participated in 37 EU-funded projects since 2002.

Main role in the project:

NTUA.HMCS contributes in the project with its expertise in the energy assessment of building materials, components and systems, using both experimental and numerical simulation techniques. In addition, HMCS specializes in determining the thermal and fire behavior of conventional and innovative building materials and systems implementing a multi-scale approach that starts from micro-scale material level, to meso-scale assessment at component level ending to macro-scale assessment at system level.
