Better data for better policy making: Unveiling the new Building Stock Observatory and delving into BuiltHub insights

This webinar will look at two key EU initiatives aiming to enhance buildings data for better policy design at EU and Member State level.

With a new user interface offering advanced user experience, and an increased dataset with additional indicators and a higher level of detail, the BSO is ready to become the central data hub on European buildings. As for BuiltHub, it offers a more granular perspective by presenting data for sub-national regions or enabling comparative analyses of various indicators.

This webinar will be the opportunity to explore the synergies between these two projects, offering insights into their joint impact on shaping a more data-informed approach to building stock analysis and ;
