The INCI Project is an inter-institutional research and implementation project in the field of design and building science with the objective to improve innovation in “sustainability” by the identification and formulation of small-scale, climate-positive design methods that contribute to the sustainable development of tomorrow’s urban and rural structures, especially in line with traditional building methods: the Collective Intelligences (CI).

Starting with and based on the city of Havana, the network INCI is to develop into a knowledge platform for sustainable building through CI that integrate and make available local and regional know-how, foster innovation in the target universities, decolonize university curricula, and possibly support new approaches in vocational training.
