It is envisaged that the Dem4BIPV master programme will cover thoroughly at a minimum the following topics:

  1. Building integration
  2. Electrical performance
  3. Thermal design
  4. Regulations, Safety aspects, Standards for BIPV.

These topics are identified as the most important modules for a well-grounded knowledge on BIPV systems, specific aspects, challenges, benefits and standards. In the first project phase (framework & requirements' analysis) the labour market actors & industry will have the opportunity to communicate their needs in terms of highly-skilled professionals from different disciplines, in an effort to develop a new but efficient stream focusing on BIPV which matches the real needs of the market. In this sense, the content development activity will allow for input from the business' spectrum, thus encouraging and enforcing partnerships between higher education institutions and the business.
