The Policy Learning Platform organised a workshop on energy efficiency in buildings on 28 June 2018 in Florence, Italy.
The aim or the workshop was to pave the way for synergies between the Interreg Europe projects working on the theme. Consequently, the participating project representatives were invited to discuss and present their achievements, learn more about the European framework, see how projects could support each other for mutual regional benefit and understand how the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform could help them.
