The Dutch EFL Expertise functions as ‘platformorganisation’ of a small group of expertise offices which are specialised in durable urban development. By joining forces the partners seek to guarantee their innovation potentials in Europe. Concrete themes of which this group is actively consulting are passive house technology, the use of renewable energy in housing, but also strategies for social neighbourhood development in cities.
