This is the main output of the Sustainable Modular Houses for People in Need, Project Number: 2021-1-EL01-KA220-VET-000025502. The “research–knowledge hub” (RKH) is an electronic library developed and created for containing detailed items of applied research in the field of timber construction design principles, circular economy, sustainable development and material availability in different regions of Europe.

RKH is an innovative tool for bibliographic search, an electronic library in all languages of the partners in which the project partners have uploaded complete methods of construction (assembly and disassembly), studies, reports, practical guides and case studies which are expected to assist on finding all the necessary resources under one umbrella. The purpose of the RKH is to be a valuable tool in the hands of both researchers but mostly for the professionals who are actually involved in the whole phase of delivering a modular unit for people in need (from design to construction).
