Next Thursday 20 October from 10:00-11:30 CET, the event “Creating Synergies and Sharing Experiences between Projects in Different Regions” will take place. The seminar will be held virtually and different European projects in the field of sustainable energy will be presented.
This meeting is taking place during the European Week of Regions and Cities, under the theme “New Challenges for Europe’s Cohesion”. This year, topics such as ecological and digital transition, territorial cohesion and youth empowerment will be addressed, with a special focus on the role of cohesion policy in Europe’s sustainable recovery.
The aim of the day will be to share experiences, create synergies and promote partnerships between projects working in the field of sustainable energy from different regions of Europe. In addition to showcasing their technologies, the invited projects will present their contribution to the RePowerEU strategy in their regions. This strategy, presented by the European Commission in May this year, aims to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and accelerate the green transition. In this sense, the green transformation will strengthen economic growth, security and climate action for Europe.
This meeting will be divided into three panels, starting with the institutional panel where several experts will talk about energy efficiency policies and the importance of innovation. This will be followed by a panel on European funds in which representatives of the Finnova Foundation will participate. Finally, several European projects will present and explain their energy-related proposals.
To attend this event, participants can register here and add it to their agenda.
About LIFE ECODIGESTION 2.0
The LIFE ECODIGESTION 2.0 project presents a digital automatic control system for the dosing of organic waste in anaerobic digesters of WWTP (Waste Water Treatment Plant) to maximise the production of biogas on demand as renewable energy. This project has a budget of more than 970,000 euros. The pilot project, which has a duration of four years (2020-2024), is led by Global Omnium Medioambiente (Spain) and has as partners the Finnovaregio Foundation (Belgium) and Águas do Centro Litoral (Portugal). The production of biogas to cover energy demand and reduce the amount of waste in landfill contributes to compliance with the European Landfill Directive.
