On Friday May 10th at the Marche Polytechnic University of Ancona (Italy) a dissemination event related to LIFE SUPERHERO project will be organized. The invitation has been extended to all Tiles & Brick Europe (TBE) members to explain the strategic importance of the breathability test for terracotta roof tiles. A demonstration of the test will be performed in the UNIVPM laboratories (and it will be repeated also on Monday 13th).

Tiles & Bricks Europe represents industry associations and companies from 21 European Union Member States and Switzerland. The association promotes the interests of the clay brick and tile industry in Europe.
