Friday, 1 April – The ‘Technological Breakfasts’ are a space for dialogue between the business sector, public institutions and universities of Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands. They share innovative projects that favour the economic development of the region. To promote entrepreneurship and public-private collaboration, Juan Manuel Revuelta, general director of the Finnova Foundation, a project’s partner, presented LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0.  

European funding, through its different programmes, is an essential tool for the development of disruptive projects. In this framework, LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0 was presented as a success story of a European project in putrescible organic waste and wastewater. Its contribution to the circular economy model, its technological innovation base and the essence of transnational cooperation are three key points for the economic growth of the archipelago.  In this way, through the presentation of the project, the aim is, on the one hand, to create synergies and generate networking, promoting the sustainability of the project and, on the other hand, to set itself up as an inspiring example of the great potential of European funding programmes in the fight against climate change.
