Smart² Project Launches SRI-FAQ: Bridging the Gap Between Smart Readiness Indicator and European Citizens

The Smart² project, an innovative initiative aimed at promoting and establishing the intelligence assessment of buildings in Europe, is thrilled to announce the launch of the SRI-FAQ, a comprehensive resource designed to bring the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) closer to European citizens.

As part of the project’s overarching objective to enhance smart readiness improvements of buildings, the SRI-FAQ guide has been meticulously crafted to simplify knowledge and understanding about the Smart Readiness Indicator, thus making complex concepts accessible to everyone. It has been planned and developed in collaboration with all participating partners in the Smart² project. This collaborative effort ensures that the platform is sustainable and can serve as a lasting resource for SRI informative purposes.

One of the key features of the SRI-FAQ is its compilation of the 100 most pertinent questions regarding the Smart Readiness Indicator. These questions have been sourced from more than 50 roundtable discussions and digital exchanges with ordinary citizens, ensuring that the content is directly relevant to the concerns and inquiries of the public. Moreover, the answers provided in the SRI-FAQ are articulated using laypeople’s terms, eliminating jargon and technical complexities to make the information more comprehensible.

Accessible at the www.sri-faq.eu domain, the SRI-FAQ website serves as a parallel initiative within the Smart² project. The website boasts a user-friendly design with responsive features, making it easy for individuals of all backgrounds to navigate and access valuable information about the SRI.

Dr. Panayiotis Philimis, Project Coordinator for Smart², emphasized the significance of this website development. He stated, “The SRI-FAQ website is a major step in our mission to bridge the gap between the Smart Readiness Indicator and European citizens. We believe that accessibility to information is the key to decision-making, and this platform will play a vital role in achieving that.”

The Smart Readiness Indicator is a critical element in Europe’s journey towards sustainability and smarter urban living. It assesses the capacity of buildings to adapt to the demands of the modern world by integrating smart technologies effectively. As the European Union places a growing emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency, understanding and utilizing the SRI is crucial.

The launch of the SRI-FAQ marks a significant milestone for the Smart² project and the European Union as a whole. It is a testament to the project’s dedication to promoting sustainability, fostering innovation, and empowering European citizens with knowledge and resources to embrace smart technologies and solutions.

By providing straightforward answers to pressing questions about the Smart Readiness Indicator, the SRI-FAQ empowers individuals to make informed decisions about energy efficiency and sustainability in their homes and workplaces. It aligns with the European Union’s commitment to achieving its ambitious sustainability goals and ensuring that no one is left behind in the transition to a smarter, greener future.

The Smart² project’s launch of the SRI-FAQ website is a crucial step towards enhancing accessibility to valuable information about the Smart Readiness Indicator. This initiative reaffirms the project’s commitment to bridging the gap between SRI and EU citizens, ensuring that sustainability and smart solutions are within reach for all.
