The 5th Interregional Event took place in Kozani (Greece) on May 3rd and 4th 2017. It was organized by the Western Macedonia University of Applied Sciences (TEIWM).

Representative examples of sustainability, efficiency, utilization of renewable energy sources (RES) and of successful Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) in Western Macedonia were selected as study visits. Thus, the sites visited were the Mpodosakeio Hospital of Promelaida (EEA Grants RES project) and the West Macedonia Solid Waste Management System - EPADYM SA (PPP - Jessica Project).

During these visits, experiences were analyzed and shared in different fields, such as the integration of solar thermal panels in special-use buildings (hospitals) and the complexity and legislative process of PPP projects.

Within the framework of this event, the Workshop “EU Financial Instruments: Supporting projects in Western Macedonia” took place, where stakeholders attended specific practices related to FIs, ERDF funding in EE and best practices from abroad.
