The EU-project ROCARE - Roman Cements for Architectural Restoration to New High Standards - was a Collaborative Project funded within the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission (Call identifier FP7-ENV-2008-1, Project number 226898). Roman cements represent an almost forgotten group of highly hydraulic binders of Europe’s built heritage from the 19th/early 20th centuries. The material had contributed to decorate building exteriors in a large number of European cities and towns. For the project duration of 09/2009 till 08/2012, 14 partners from 7 European countries – SMEs, industrial companies, universities, as well as public and private research institutes - joined together in the re-introduction of the so-called Roman cement technology. Our aim was to combine knowledge of this historically well established binder with modern aspects of its manufacture, use and marketing. Our main target was the huge stock of buildings originating from the historicism, art nouveau and early modernism representing a period of rapid urban growth in most of Europe.
