Innovandi – the Global Cement and Concrete Research Network, has been formed by the GCCA to accelerate global collaboration on cement and concrete innovation, an important step in taking climate action. Innovandi is a large industry led consortium that ties together the cement and concrete industry with scientific institutions to drive and support global innovation with actionable research.
The first Innovandi Core Projects – funded by Industry with the aim of enabling further reductions in CO2 emissions through collaborative pre-competitive research, will go live in 2021! They are targeted research projects, shaped and funded by Industry and delivered by leading academics in the concrete and cement sectors.
The Innovandi Consortium is a truly global endeavour – 30 companies from across the cement and concrete industry, including cement and concrete manufacturers, admixture specialists, equipment and technology suppliers are now Innovandi Partners, along with 40 scientific institutions. It connects industry with scientific institutions to drive innovation, facilitates a global dialogue on key research and builds on the industry’s long-held commitment to ensuring a more sustainable future.
Become an Innovandi Industrial Partner
Innovandi Industrial Partnership is open to GCCA members, admixture producers, equipment and technology suppliers. To become an Innovandi Industrial Partner please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on the following 3 step process:
- Be voted into network by the Innovandi Full Assembly
- Sign the consortium agreement (with fair and equitable terms already signed by 70 companies and institutions)
- Pay an annual fee which will go directly into funding research to reduce CO2 emissions. The fee structure makes partnership accessible to a wide variety of companies, big and small. Industrial Partner Contributions are determined by Annual Cement Capacity (if a cement producer) or via turnover in a cement or concrete related business.
