Trans / hitos, ceramic for architecture exhibition is presented each year at the fair Cevisama, quotes regarding the Spanish ceramic sector, include in its next edition -from 9 to the 13 th of February- original proposal: demonstrator platform “Open Habitat”.
Open Habitat Platform is a facility in which various elements of housing appear connected to an intelligent platform, aimed at improving the daily lives of users, especially those most vulnerable groups such as children, the elderly or those with disabilities.

Open Habitat, a project that is funded by the IVACE through the European Regional Development Fund FEDER, has been developed by the technological institutes of Ceramics (ITC), Optics, Color and Image (AIDO), the Textile Technology Institute (AITEX) and the Technological Institute of Construction (AIDICO), coordinated by the Technological Institute of Furniture, Wood, Packaging and Allied (For game).
Trans-hitos is the sign Ceramic Tile held last eleven years at Feria Valencia, sectoral competition during CEVISAMA.
