How You Can Help

Smart Shelter Research welcomes your support. This can be in the form of sharing your experience and exchanging your knowledge. And it is of course possible to make a donation to our research project SMARTnet.

With a modest budget of only 20,000 Euros per year, we can continue to test and improve traditional building techniques and develop safe building codes. Your contribution, big or small, can make a big difference in how quickly we can crack the codes to build safer homes!

All financial donations will go through our Non-profit division
Smart Shelter Foundation
. Since October 2022 Smart Shelter Foundation is an environmental partner of 1% FOR THE PLANET.
