We have to draw necessary lessons from the emerging problems and their impacts without wasting any further time, and exert efforts to stop this trend and take serious measures using our own mind and consciousness. Otherwise, the growing imbalance in nature will inevitably cause even greater problems for mankind. During the last century, mankind headed towards easy solutions in the building sector due to the readily available cheap energy, exaggerated the artistic dimensions of the business, and abandoned the ecological, energyefficient and environment friendly building style. Today, mankind understands that energy resources are not infinite, and the increased global warming and impacts due to intensive consumption have directed mankind to new quests. People of the next century will most probably not use fossil fuels, even if they are available, and will have to meet their needs largely from renewable energy resources. In order not to get caught unprepared, we have to acquire this awareness now and create and introduce the infrastructure for new and renewable technologies. I hope the symposium brings about successful results for our colleagues, industry and country.

Under the project originally named Project for development of low-cost, lightweight highly insulating polymers for refrigerated transport, heating and cooling installations, project progress is being supervised through quarterly meetings. Under the project which will develop a new class of high internal/natural-phase emulsion-based polymer insulation material, although some materials have been used in many applications, materials that have never been used in circumstances requiring high performance will also be used. In such materials, it is possible to easily control porosity, pore sizes, distribution and mechanical features. For these reasons, calorific characteristics of the material can be secured low-cost production processes. Within the framework of the project to last 3 years, SMEs are coming together under the sub-heading of Partnership Research Projects for SMEs under the 7th Framework Program, and executing the project with a budget of Euro 2.6 million. The next meeting under the project will be held in London and will be hosted by TICA (Thermal Insulation Contractors Association). Detailed information about Project HIP is available at
