The Hi-Smart (Higher Education Package for Nearly Zero Energy and Smart Building Design) project aims to develop educational materials for students and professionals in higher education in Hungary, Slovakia and Germany by supporting the design, construction and operation of smart, energy efficient buildings. The multidisciplinary package covers sustainable building solutions, building services systems, renewable energy sources, and smart technologies for use in buildings.

The objective is to contribute to the professional design of nearly zero energy and smart buildings in line with the objectives of the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings. The three-year project, which runs until August 2022, will also focus on bringing students together with industry players, providing a platform for meetings and exchanges of experience.

The project runs from 2019 to 2022 and is supported by the Erasmus + program.

The project is coordinated by the Energiaklub (Hungary), and its other partners are the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Department of Building Engineering and Mechanical Process Engineering), the Technische Universitaet Kaiserslautern (Germany) and the Technical University of Bratislava (Slovenska Technicka Univerzita Bratislave).
