The vision of NZEB_LAB Research Infrastructure is to set up and consolidate a Research Laboratory Infrastructure, which congregate the existent facilities in Portugal in the domain of the Building Integration of Solar Energy and Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) to serve the National and European Industrial and Research Community to the goal of accelerate the integration of new systems and components in buildings in order to achieve the NZEB concept.

Through the research developed by NZEB_LAB, the RI strategy aims to develop and promote optimal pathways for achieving zero energy buildings standards, widespread adoption at national level by 2020, of optimized NZEB energy design and operation concepts suited to Portuguese climatic conditions and construction practices, in association with industrial partners.
