Project summary Industrial Symbiosis (IS) is a building block of the Circular Economy, a means to sustainable growth increasing resource efficiency and SMEs competitiveness and resiliency.  Despite the acknowledged advantages, IS is not yet fully widespread. The challenge TRIS is facing is to enable a systemic uptake of IS in 5 European regions, supporting policy makers to increase the competitiveness of their SMEs by introducing IS practices. To do so, the TRIS consortium will: -Identify facilitating elements and obstacles and embed them in (or remove them from) the appropriate policy instruments. -Reach out and engage with the actors that can drive and/or be impacted by the change and involve them in structured local networks.   Starting from the knowledge already achieved within the Climate-KIC initiative, TRIS will benefit greatly from interregional cooperation, given the diversity in terms of geography, productive system and maturity of IS practices: the City of Birmingham, project leader, is the most advanced, Hungary and Emilia-Romagna regions have already tested pilot projects, while Småland och Öarna and Valencia regions have approached the topic more recently. Industrial Symbiosis Ltd will play both an advisory and dissemination role, acting as a bridge between the consortium and the European perspective.   TRIS is determined to cause the following CHANGES and accomplish the following RESULTS: -Raising awareness on the concepts of IS and its economic and environmental benefits -Causing a mind-shift and building a cooperation culture in the stakeholder groups (including SMEs and policy actors) -Standardize IS practices into regional policy instruments -Launching tangible initiatives in the regions: reaching out to more SMEs, supporting their business with new IS cases/projects, preventing industrial waste production, testing new governance models. -Bringing IS to a higher position in the European political agenda. €1,617,645.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Environment and resource efficiency What will this project change? The project will raise the profile of the benefits of applying the Industrial Symbiosis approach across Europe and beyond, by involving stakeholders (SME and policy actors) across the world. Additionally the project will develop a standardised approach to Industrial Symbiosis, and this will affect regulation and policy instruments going forward. Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Waste Management Plan (WMP) of Emilia-Romagna Region (resolution nr. 103; February 3, 2014) The Waste Management Plan (WMP) implements the recommendations contained in current regulations and represents one of the regional strategy cornerstones for sustainable development. It defines objectives and actions for waste management, ensuring environmental and health protection and reducing the overall impacts of resource use. In accordance with the so-called "waste hierarchy", WMP outlines a governance model based on waste prevention, preparation for reuse, recycling, recovery and disposal.   WMP's 2020 objectives are: • reduction of municipal and special (i.e. industrial) waste production per capita • increase of separate waste collection • improvement of recycling rates   WMP includes the regional Programme for Waste Prevention, that sets objectives and measures of prevention for stimulating waste reuse, related to single enterprises, groups of companies or production sectors with a positive impact on their economic competitiveness: among these measures, one of the key strategies is represented by Industrial Symbiosis. (§ 17.6 of the Programme).   WMP improvements will be aimed at: •strengthening the prevention of special waste production •implementing recovery actions Through the participation in TRIS, the Regional Authority aims to investigate several aspects (regulations, industrial sectors, characteristics of production process, raw materials used, etc.) with the final aim of providing companies with a clearer context to seek solutions for reuse of their byproducts.

Emilia-Romagna Region - General Directorate for Territorial and Environmental Care ART-ER (until 30/04/2019 ASTER) ROP 2014-2020 - PROGRAMA OPERATIVO DEL FONDO DE DESARROLLO REGIONAL DE LA COMUNIDAD VALENCIANA 2014-2020 Priority Axis 3 To improve the competitiveness of SMEs S.O. 3.4.2 Promoting innovation of SMEs and innovation cooperation in all areas, particularly eco-innovation, social innovation and agriculture, fisheries, marine, maritime and tourism sectors. The expected change is to create a highly innovative productive and business fabric, to develop products and services in the areas of eco-innovation, social innovation, agriculture, fisheries, marine, maritime and tourism sectors, to empower the Valencian SMEs and increase their competitiveness.   The ROP will contribute to the objective of promoting innovation in SMEs, through financial support measures in innovative companies which have a high potential in creating activities and services of high value and wealth for the Valencian Region.This will expand opportunities for growth, internationalisation and employment generation in the region and guide their productive capacities in future strategic sectors. As a result, the ROP will help to create the financing conditions necessary for SME´s.   Currently the OP has focused on the improvement of the SME´s innovation, dealing separately with different sectors. In the Valencian Region these sectors are particularly agriculture, tourism, trade, crafts and textile and footwear sectors. The improvement of the competitiveness is especially focused on their production processes and the investment on innovative products and services. Through the IS approach we intend to study the industrial ecosystem globally thus tackling the problem in a holistic way to develop a circular economy. Therefore, the TRIS project is intended to improve resource efficiency and foster the use of by-products while boosting the competitiveness of the SMEs. Which partners are working on this?

Investment Priority 3d - Supporting the capacity of small and medium sized enterprises to grow in regional, national and international markets and to engage in innovation processes Specific objective: Increase growth capability of Small and Medium sized Enterprises  . The primary aim of Priority Axis 3 SME Competitiveness is to improve the competitiveness of SMEs by increasing the capacity and capability of SMEs and promoting entrepreneurship. A range of Investment Priorities will focus ERDF intervention to support entrepreneurship and increase the growth capacity of SMEs. These are:  Investment Priority 3d - Supporting the capacity of small and medium sized enterprises to grow in regional, national and international markets and to engage in innovation processes Existing Small and Medium sized Enterprises face a number of barriers which restrict their ability to achieve their growth ambitions. These include: • Information and coordination failures which limit awareness, access and take- up of business support; • High up-front costs and perceived difficulties in navigating legal, regulatory and cultural environments which constrain the number of Small and Medium sized Enterprises entering new export markets; and • Known market failures in the disproportionate costs of establishing and costing risks given the relatively small amounts of capital involved.   The Industrial Symbiosis approach will develop capacity of Small and Medium sized Enterprises work alongside actions to develop capability of Small and Medium sized Enterprises. Both will lead to an increase in jobs created in Small and Medium sized Enterprises and in Small and Medium sized Enterprise productivity. Which partners are working on this? Birmingham City Council Industrial Symbiosis Limited Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme (EDIOP) 1.6.2 National specific objectives SO 2.1 Creating growth opportunities for SMEs by enhancing the growth potential in case of SMEs not performing technological innovation.  EDIOP is the main document for the absorption of EU funds in economic development in parts of Hungary, other than Budapest and Pest county. It covers horizontal measures as priority areas such as Improving the competitiveness of SMEs, RDI, Employment, Competitive workforce, plus priority areas focusing on certain sectors such as Tourism, ICT, Energy. Resource efficiency is among the top five government priorities of this OP and recognized as a large opportunity to enhance competitiveness, despite not being explicitly mentioned as a Priority Axis or activity . While only energy efficiency is targeted, closed loop production, collaboration among companies to share resources and use of secondary raw materials can also support the objectives and enhance the economic and environmental impact of this OP. Hence, the TRIS project envisages the launch of symbioses directly addressing industrial waste reduction and reuse of by-product in forms of structural changes and possibly new projects starting from best practice exchange. The main aim of the targeted Specific Objective is to promote SMEs currently conducting a technological development so as to achieve an innovative infrastructural development and participation in IS networks/clusters that enables them to become internationally competitive. Secondary objectives are to decrease the energy & material intensity of the production processes; therefore to increase productivity and competitiveness and create new and sustainable jobs.   Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Cities are places where environmental performance management is of utmost importance: in the majority of them there is a concentration of unsustainable behaviours in terms of waste management, energy efficiency or mobility. Heritage Cities share this fact with other cities but, in addition, the preservation of heritage and the management of significant amounts of waste, due to high tourist and economic activity levels, make the observance of waste-related strategies by authorities, private actors and households of specific importance.  Heritage cities share different characteristics:  Historical artistic heritage, which leads to permanent flows of tourists, remarkable economic activity and significant production of related wasteMostly ancient cities with winding city centres where ordinary waste management methods and equipment hardly workNeed to observe aesthetic criteria for interventions in urban protected spaces, waste- field interventions includedVisibility to the rest of the world Improving local and regional policies for sustainable waste management in Heritage Cities.Even though Heritage Cities have probably developed interesting solutions and policies in many fields, running waste-related services is complicated in such scenarios. In such a framework, the aim of INTHERWASTE is European Heritage Cities to exchange experiences and policies for efficient and sustainable management of municipal waste and  in order to contribute  through mutual capacity-building, policy learning and drafting action plans - to the environmental performance of waste management in EU cities.The capacity of the staff of involved authorities to design and implement policies and measures in the waste field and governance in the same field are expected to be improved, too. Solutions and policies proved feasible in INTHERWASTE are believed to be transferable to most Heritage Cities as well as to non-heritage (less-demanding contexts) cities in the EU. The visibility of Heritage Cities worldwide can help reduplicate experiences identified in many other cities.   One project, Four stepsLearning and exchanging best practices and policiesIntegrating this knowledge into concrete action plansMonitoring the action plans implemented in each citySharing the solutions and policies with other European citiesWatch our video to discover more about INTHERWASTE & waste management in Heritage cities €1,274,858.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF Operative Programme 2014-2020 for Region of Andalucía (Spain). Thematic Objective 6.- to preserve and protect the environment and to promote resource efficiency. The instrument aims to develop the region of Andalusia through planning and interventions in key fields. It is thematic objective 6 of the ERDF regional policy instrument - to preserve and protect the environment and to promote resource efficiency- that is addressed through the project, specifically investment priority 6.1.- waste management: actions supporting the development of separation, separate collection and treatment. The main objective of investment line 6.1. is to ensure the management of non-hazardous waste in the region of Andalusia addressed under quality standards in terms of both fair service to the citizenship and associated rigorous environmental protection.   INTHERWASTE can provide further improvements to the policy instrument approach providing that the focus of the project is placed on waste management in Heritage Cities. The project explores how to simultaneously observe the environmental aspects of waste management processes - emphasis placed on separate deposit and collection and recycling-, and integrate waste management related elements with the surrounding urban heritage, whether it is protected or not. This is something that is missing in the policy instrument. In addition, the project can improve the policy instrument by incorporating notions for guiding better practices in the region for already established priorities - separation, separate collection and treatment-, as the policy instrument is generalist when addressing how to approach them.   Which partners are working on this? Sanitation Córdoba (SADECO) ERDF Regional Operative Programme for North 2014-2020 (Portugal). Priority Axis 5- urban system. Thematic objective 6- preservation and protection of the environment and promotion of resource efficiency   The North 2020 is the financial instrument that supports regional development of Northern Portugal, with a budget of 3.4 billion Euros. It is organised into 10 Priority Axes in areas such as Research, Technological Development and Innovation; Competitiveness of SMEs; Low Carbon Economy; Environmental Quality; Urban System; Employment and Workers´ Mobility or Social Inclusion and Poverty, among others.  It is priority axis 5 “Urban System” that it is addressed through INTHERWASTE, specifically thematic objective 6 “preservation and protection of the environment and resource efficiency” ; investment priority 6e concerns  “adoption of measures to improve the urban environment, revitalise cities, recover and decontaminate brownfield sites including conversion areas, reduce air pollution and promote noise reduction measures."   The policy instrument can be improved in order to make the guidance for efficient and sustainable waste management more specific and oriented, incorporating specific notions to promote prevention and valorisation in the region on a regular guided basis. Moreover there is room for the policy incorporating specificities for waste-related interventions in heritage urban areas; this is of importance for the special affluence of tourism and consequent production of waste and because of the aesthetic impact of waste and some waste-oriented solutions. Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Porto ("partner until 31/12/2017") Municipality of Porto Environment Company (EMAP) ("partner from 01/12/2017") Operational Programme for Regional Structural Funds ERDF of the Sicily region 2014/2020 (Italy). Priority 6a –investing in the waste sector. (Until 31st. March 2017) Thematic objective 6 of Regional Structural Funds addresses “preserving and protecting the environment and promoting efficient use of resources”. Priority 6a within concerns specifically investing in the waste sector to meet the obligations imposed by European Union legislation on the environment and to meet the needs identified by the member state as well as promoting investments going beyond these obligations. According to 6.1. – optimisation of municipal waste management according to the European hierarchy, the specific objectives in the region of Sicily are: 6.1.1. To implement the activities envisaged in the National Plan for Waste Prevention, and 6.1.2. To achieve better waste separation systems and an adequate network of waste collection centres.   The policy instrument has room to be improved by further developing the contents concerning separate waste deposit, collection, and treatment in Sicilian cities, aiming at including advanced specific procedures and systems, and also incorporating the integration of waste management within the urban scenario into the instrument.  Which partners are working on this? Syracuse Municipality ERDF Regional Operational Programme for Malopolskie Voivodeship 2014-2020 RPO WM (Poland). Priority Axis no. 5 - Environmental Protection. Action 5.2.- Development of the waste management system. The programme’s main objective is to increase the competitiveness of the Malopolska region. Priority axis 5 concerns environmental protection and Action 5.2. specifically concerns the development and implementation of a proper waste management system in the Malopolska region, including the city of Krakow.   To reach that goal it is necessary to take strategic actions such as waste prevention, selective waste collection, preparation for reuse and recycling, as well as other recovery and disposal processes. Waste recycling is a field that needs to be further explored in the policy instrument so selective collection is imperative now in Poland in order to meet national legal obligations, which will be complemented with formal protocols and measures for recycling.   Moreover, the notion of integrating the waste management systems and devices into the heritage contexts of many parts of the cities needs to be explored and systematised in the regional policy instrument as well as in the local ones.  Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Krakow Waste Management Plan of the City of Tallinn (Estonia) It deals with the situation of waste management in the administrative district and describes planning objectives for the organisation and rationalisation of waste management as well as measures required to achieve these objectives. It is the strategic waste plan in the city area.   Objectives of the plan are: - Conducting different research studies and surveys on the subject, informing the citizens - Informing the citizens on waste management in Tallinn - Improving separate collection and sorting of waste, in accordance with the waste hierarchy, favouring alternative methods for waste treatment.  - Organising waste collection in the whole city, and - Cooperation with neighbouring municipalities.   This policy instrument can be improved by producing tailored regulation and planning for waste management in Tallinn Old Town, a currently inexistent approach. The need for it is made evident and in the next Plan from 2016 onwards Tallinn Old Town is expected to be considered as a special district with unique challenges in waste management due to the fact that its historic heritage conditions the interventions. These special circumstances for waste management in Old Town have not been previously addressed previously. The current Waste Management Plan 2012-2016 will be shortly replaced with a new one whose contents can be clearly influenced by the results of the cooperation.  Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Tallinn Public Waste Collection Sheet for the city of Ibiza approved by the Plenary of the City Council the 27th March 2014; in force since 13th June 2016 and for 10 years (policy instrument integrated into project from 01/05/2017). The Public Waste Collection Sheet under way since 2016 deals with the different needs of the municipality of Ibiza with regard to waste including the heritage city and limiting areas. It has facilitated more and better resources and procedures to be implemented and the fact of a strategic plan for waste management being currently under study. INTHERWASTE can further improve the Public Waste Collection Sheet in force as the focus of the project is placed on waste management in Heritage Cities. The project explores how to simultaneously observe environmental aspects of waste management processes - emphasis placed on separate deposit and collection and recycling – and integrate waste management related elements with the surrounding urban heritage. This approach can enable tailored regulation and planning in our Local Waste Collection Sheet as well as in future strategic documents. Which partners are working on this?

Project summary SmartEdge will address the potential for greenhouse gas emission reductions that lie in the development of smaller cities within metropolitan areas. Edge cities are an integral part of the existing metropolitan fabric and may be laboratories for smart, green, economic solutions and have the opportunity to play a crucial role in the low carbon economy. The overall objective of the project is to improve low carbon economy policies in edge cities and their metropolitan regions. To achieve this, eight partners from the metropolitan areas of Akershus, Barcelona, Brandenburg, Ilfov, Krakow, Milano and Stockholm, and the Romanian Ministry of Environment will exchange experience, transfer good practices and facilitate learning between the partners on innovative tools for urban planning. Transport and buildings represent the lion’s share of our emissions, and may be reduced through efficient policies on a local and regional level. Smart Edge will in particular explore the potential for local renewable energy production, reduction of emissions from transport through renewable energy and energy systems ad reduction of emissions from buildings through renewable energy and energy systems. SmartEdge is expected to result in improved low carbon economy policies in edge cities and their metropolitan regions. In particular the metropolitan regions will prepare and implement action plans to improved selected seven policy instuments by sharing solutions for Integrated Strategic Planning for edge cities and their regions, providing tools and methods for multi-level governance and participatory planning, actively including the edge cities and other stakeholders in the metropolitan areas, and develop policy recommendations. 205 MEUR in Structural funds and 124,8 MEUR in other fundsof other funds are estimated to be influenced by the project. €1,080,306.00 from 1 Jun 2018 to 30 Nov 2022 Topic Low-carbon economy Second workshop compleded! We are happy to announce that we have just completed our second project meeting and workshop in the SmartEdge project. The venue for the exchange of experiance and workshop was the magnificent Village Museum in Buchuresti, while the site visit the next day was in Magurele, Ilfov. The theme for our workshop was participatory urban and energy planning.When mapping the theme in the partnership, we identified three interesting findings:1) Participation in urban and energy planning (the citizen dialog) is for the most part handled at local level, by the municipalities themselves.2) Several of the regions support the local level with recourses (money / time) to support participation, or facilitate network meetings / seminars to set the agenda and make municipalities share with each other how to facilitate participation in planning.3) Several regions see participation relevant for urban planning, while the field is not well elaborated within energy planning.A general outtake of the WS is that it is necessary to work cross-disciplinary with participatory planning, and make it relevant for climate and energy planning. To reach our climate goals we need to work together anc cross the different sectors.When planning for tomorrow’s urban areas and the energy transition ahead, the participatory perspective must be taken into account. One example: Since November 2018 “the yellow wests” have been demonstrating in Paris and France. The manifistations started as a reaction against the higher tax on fossil fuels, but arguments for more purchasing power and greater democracy was also addressed. This shows that participatory planning is relevant when working with both climate measures (gas tax or other measures) and land-use planning, and these themes are interconnected and should be  dealt with together. Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Regional Plan for Climate and Energy in Akershus 2018-2050 The Regional Plan for Climate and Energy aims to develop policies for common climate actions that should be implemented. Urban sprawl and increase in GHG emissions are challenges that need to be adressed in order to develop the six appointed edge towns into regional independent cities with good urban quality. Thus, the plan is closely linked to the polycentric strategy (one core and 6 edge cities) described in the "Joint Regional Plan for Land Use and Transportation in Oslo and Akershus". This plan sets the foundation for reducing the need for cars and transitioning to a mobility pattern based on walking, cycling and public transport. The population increase and growth has led to a transition towards these edge cities, and the Regional Plan for Climate and Energy will contribute to develop these towns into good and climate-friendly living areas by reducing GHG emissions and facilitating sustainable growth for a low carbon economy. In order for the county to be a leading sustainable region, it is imperative to find common strategies and policies. To significantly reduce GHG emissions, all levels of government need good practices for collaboration, involvement and implementation of strategies and measures. The regional plan and subsequent action plans will be important tools in the development of the six edge cities alongside other regional measures initiated by Akershus county. Which partners are working on this? Viken County Council (until 31.12.2019 Akershus County Council) Operational programme for the State of Brandenburg for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in the funding period 2014-2020 (cancelled) The OP ERDF Brandenburg 2014-2020 focusses on innovation, competitiveness of SMEs, CO2 reduction strategies and integrated urban and rural development. Especially Priority Axis 3 (159.817.499 EUR) aims at supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors. Four Specific Objectives (SO) in PA 3 will directly benefit from the project (funding related to IP):   1. SO 9 "Improving energy efficiency in private enterprises" (Investment priority (IP) 4b with 15,8 Mio EUR), 2. SO 10 "Increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in public buildings and infrastructure as well as in urban districts" (IP 4c with 25,8 Mio. EUR), 3. SO 13 "Developing strategies, district development concepts and related implementation measures to reduce CO2 emissions" (IP 4e with 34 Mio. EUR) and 4. SO 14 "Improving the CO2 balance of the transport sector" (IP 4e).   With regard to urban planning, Brandenburg ERDF OP will also benefit in PA 4 "Integrated development of urban and rural areas" adressing sustainable use of natural resources in cities. Edge cities are of high relevance as they act as intermediaries between fast growing Berlin Brandenburg. Owing to the strong trend of suburbanization in the capital region with its challenges in key climate-relevant areas such as supply and use of electrical energy, heating/cooling or public and private transport the need of edge cities for new concepts of CO2 reduction in all sectors of the economy is especially high.   Which partners are working on this? Brandenburg Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Energy Catalonia's ERDF Operational Programme 2014-2020 (Axis 4) Catalonia's ERDF OP focuses on knowledge and innovation, entrepreneurship and green economy. Axis 4 (128.962.375 EUR) promotes facilitating the transition to low-carbon economy in all sectors, and includes two Investment Priorities that will be directly addressed in the project:   - IP 4.3 "Support energy efficiency, intelligent management of energy and the use of renewable energies in public infrastructure ", with specific objective 4.3.1 of "Improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions in the buildings, infrastructures and public services"; - IP 4.5 "Promoting carbon reduction strategies for all types of land, especially in urban areas, including the promotion of urban mobility, multimodal and sustainable adaptation measures with a mitigation effect", and its specific objective 4.5.1 of "Promotion of sustainable urban mobility".   Furthermore, Axis 6 (131.971.497 EUR) focusses on resource efficiency and the protection of the environment, with priorities including the improvement of urban environment and revitalisation of cities.   Edge cities are key in the transition to low-carbon economies, but the policy instrument does not specifically tackle them. For example, in Barcelona the use of private vehicles is especially high for the connections between edge cities and the centre. It is essential to focus carbon emissions reduction in edge cities, and SmartEdge can improve the ERDF of developing this specific approach. Which partners are working on this? Barcelona Metropolitan Area Regional development plan for the Stockholm region 2050 (RUFS 2050) RUFS 2050 is both a physical plan and a regional development program. Its vision is to become Europe’s most attractive metropolitan region. RUFS is basis for transport infrastructure investments in the region.   Continuous investments in energy efficiency and mitigation measures since the 1990’s have made the Stockholm region to a forerunner regarding climate protection. The region has achieved a de-coupling of economic growth and GHG emissions. Under the objective of “becoming a resource efficient region without climate impact”, RUFS 2050 sets out ambitious energy and climate goals. The current direct CO2 eq emissions are 2.7 tons/capita*year, goal for 2030 is 1.5 ton and zero-net emissions by 2045. The transport sector stands for 55 percent of the county’s emissions of 6 million tons CO2 (2014).   Another central development feature of RUFS 2050 is to evolve a polycentric region with one central core and 8 regional cores (edge cities). These are growth poles where a big part of future development shall take place (housing, public services and enterprises). Their sustainable development is one of eight major priorities. To bring the region to net zero emission levels together with smart land use solutions contribute to a low carbon society. These commitments need a broad stakeholder approach and a lot of investments particularly in the regional cores. SmartEdge can provide valuable input both in terms of new knowledge and implementation practices of other European regions. Which partners are working on this? Region Stockholm Lombardy Regional Operational Programme (ROP) ERDF 2014-2020 (Priority Axis 4) The OP of Lombardy focuses on three main goals in order to implement a regional strategy coherent with a “smart, sustainable and inclusive” growth:   1. Supporting the competitiveness of the Regional SMEs 2. Efficient use of resources 3. Inclusive development for "critical" Areas   The fourth activity line (Asse IV) implementing these goals, with a budget of 194,6 ml€ – 20.05 % of the whole ERDF funding – is “Support the transition to a low-carbon economy in all sectors” with the goal to help cut carbon emissions and make up the shortfall compared with the target of the Europe 2020 strategy over the period 2014-2020.   Its main goal is to support measures to reduce energy consumption in the public sector (public buildings and public lighting) and interventions designed to promote strategies for cutting carbon emissions in urban and metropolitan areas, in keeping with the relevant regional instruments.   More efforts are required to kick start structural support measures such as the identification of bottlenecks that may be represented by the lack of multi-level governance co-ordination between Egde Cities and Region through the role of the Metropolitan City.   Thorugh SmartEdge we aim to achieve this through the use of renewable energy sources, innovation in the monitoring process of thermal heating systems in buildings, implementation and use of new digital tools and improvement of the energy efficiency performance of buildings by increasing the maintenance of thermal plants.   Which partners are working on this? Innovhub - SSI srl Regional Operational Programme for the Małopolska Region 2014 - 2020 – Priority Axis 4. Regional Energy Policy The Regional Operational Programme (ROP) for the 2014-2020 period for Małopolska means up to 2.87 billion euro from the European Funds. The programme consists of thirteen one-fund priority axes. Among them, the largest amounts are planned to be spent on innovation, energy policy and transport infrastructure. In the context of the project, we will address objective of the Priority Axis 4 which is to create conditions for a sustainable growth in the region, with account being taken of the aspects of a modern energy sector and an urban transport sector, ensuring energy security for the region’s residents and improving the quality of their life while, at the same time, respecting with the principles of environmental protection. Funding allocated to this Priority Axis is 420 mln euro.   Goals for axis are for the first time implemented on such – metropolitan – scale. For the first time on such scale, we deal with the issue of sustainable transport and mobility. Why it needs to be improved? The ROP contains a good framework for projects, however it is necessary to develop detailed recommendations - guidelines for creating better projects aiming for solving issues common for the whole Metropolitan Area. The ROP lacks recommendations for wide, system solutions, which would have contribute to consistent growth within the metropolis, using the potential of Cracow and edge cities. Which partners are working on this? Krakow Metropolis Association National Climate Change and Low Carbon Economic Growth Strategy for 2016-2020 This strategy describes and provides essential data and information on climate variations that have affected and will affect Romania; it is also providing support information and relevant data on the overall contribution of each sector to GHG emissions and how human activity (through productive or consumption / use processes) together with natural processes leads to these emissions.   Lower units and operators in lower energy consumption sectors have as targets the reduction of emissions by 19% in 2020 compared to the level of 2005. Also, Romania has pledged to increase the share of energy from renewable sources in energy consumption to 18% in 2005 to 24% by 2020.   Better cooperation with stakeholder groups and the civil society will contribute to a change of mentality and approach, leading to the much desired shift in between theory and practice. Education efforts must support individuals and societies to make informed decisions about climate change.   Climate. Why improve: The policy instrument doesn't have any particular focus on the role of edge cities in facilitating transition to low carbon economy, and this perspective needs to be strengthened on the basis of good practices freom the other partners .   Changing our own behavior can limit climate change. By switching to energy sources that don't release greenhouse gases, increasing the energy efficiency of our homes and offices, and driving less, we can reduce our effect on the climate and limit climate change.     Which partners are working on this?

Project summary EPICAH aims to promote the improvement of the policy instruments for crossborder cooperation processes in the natural and cultural heritage protection. The objective of the project is also to develop the management of the border by using it as a tourist attraction factor. It shall improve the effectiveness of tourism activity in managing the organization and valorisation of these assets.  Working together to support a better crossborder cooperation in the preservation, protection, promotion and development of natural and cultural heritage.  For the next five years partners will learn from each other and share their knowledge and also their challenges they face in crossborder development in order to enhance the cooperation between border entities by encouraging coordinated actions of the policy makers and technicians responsible for its implementation by developing sustainable, homogeneous and consistent tools on both sides of the border in heritage preservation. Connected by borders. The partners various cultural and natural resources situated in border areas like forests, sea, monuments, rivers or vineyards, calls for a particular focus on the collaboration between local stakeholders in order to carry out actions for a common goal: nature conservation and preservation of cultural heritage  by making accessible for tourism in a sustainable approach.        €1,931,295.00 from 1 Jan 2017 to 31 Dec 2021 Topic Environment and resource efficiency What will this project change? The important factor of the learning process are the thematic seminars and the study visits where partners exchange and develop tools to implement in the regions. In addition, each partner set up a Regional Stakeholder Group that gives feedback about the implementation of the working tools. Learn, share, implement  The combination of the work of each partner entities as well as the implication and feedback of the stakeholder group will serve to overcome conflict, misunderstood and lack of cooperation through the suggestion of new types of projects in the current crossborder programmes or even by proposing a new logical framework of the Interreg A programmes for the next programming period.   In each region the border fragmentises and divides organically cohesive cultural landscape with varied and symbiotic communities and heritage that have been existing and developing together for centuries. Through the project’s implementation the stakeholders from the two sides of the border rediscover and experience the benefits and catalysation effects of cooperation, practice and knowledge sharing. An appalling project could affect the region’s crossborder cooperation networks’ further development and enhancement with newly joining cultural and economic entities that could revitalize the organic and prosperous interconnections of the region. It could also be a good tool to eliminate the conflict of interests between the two sides of the border and make the benefits of cooperation visible. Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Interreg V-A - Spain-Portugal (POCTEP) Interreg A POCTEP is running since 1989. Among years, it has evolved from a program for parallel actions to a program that promotes real joint activities and from prioritizing infrastructure to bet for immaterial assets like culture, environment, innovation, health or culture. The final aim of POCTEP is to improve the quality of life of people living in border areas. EPICAH will address POCTEP 2014-2020 focusing on priority 3 (of 5) “Protect the environment and promote the efficiency in the use of local resources”. Within this priority, on the objective of “protect and valorise cultural and natural heritage as a resource for economic development in the border area”. To approach to the above-mentioned objective, the program foresees actions to deploy the potential of the tourism sector in the natural areas and for the protection and promotion of culture and natural heritage as economic assets. In this sense, it boosts activities like networks creation, coordinated management of assets, studies or creation of common brands for joint promotion. This approach seems good but not enough to release the full potential of cultural and natural heritage contribution to the economic development. To achieve this ambitious objective, it is needed to design and implement common (not only coordinated) strategies in the crossborder regions, having as a result the joint development of these resources, being worked out on both sides of the border as if the border would not exist. Which partners are working on this? Atlantic Axis of Peninsular Northwest Atlantic Axis Of Peninsular Northwest (ES) Iberian Association of Riverside Municipalities of Duero River Cooperation Programme - Interreg VA Italy-France «Maritime» 2014-2020 The objective of the programme is to «Foster a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in the cross-border area» which aims to prioritize the «Support to the development of green and blue economies» [Axis 1] and by «Enhancing and protecting the natural and cultural heritage» [Axis 2]. This 2 priority axes include several thematic objectives, like: TO3- Improve SME competitiveness, particularly referring to blue and green economies (including tourism) TO6 – Preserve and protect the environment and promote efficient use of resources In this context, the programme measures are addressed to SMEs (mainly cluster of SMEs), institutions, universities, public-private research centres and associations. These measures will help respond to many territorial needs and also increase awareness about green and sustainable business models along the whole value chain of tourism sector, particular referring to cross border value chains, strengthening local policy instruments for the reduction of pressure on environment and preservation of natural and cultural heritage by giving it a crossborder approach. Barriers are represented by a high fragmentation of the tourism system (high % of micro enterprises and stakeholders) that slows the access to green and sustainable business models and technologies and by a low propensity of local administration to deal with high scale problems (environment, tourism flows and mobility) with integrate policies at transnational level. Which partners are working on this? Agency for the Development of the Empolese Valdelsa ROP 2014-2020 of Region of Western Macedonia Region of Western Macedonia (RWM) will prepare a RAP for axis 6 of the ROP structural funds that will combine the project objectives & interregional lessons learnt with RWM natural & cultural heritage policy. The main objective of the ROP–Investment priority 6.c is to focus on supporting the regional heritage policy on economic & social dimensions, including tourism actions in the cross border areas with Albania & FYROM. The main characteristics of the specific RAP as an outcome of the project, includes activities to promote the economic attractiveness of the regional economy through its unique natural beauty & cultural heritage. The priority among cross border-territories & other actions of the specific policy instrument 6.c chosen is high. RWM needs to follow alternative development models since it faces many difficulties coming out of the remaining financial crisis, the market globalization & the environmental problems because of the mining activities of the Greek PPC in the region since 1950. Natural & heritage related aspects connected with agro-tourism consist increasingly a key factor for sustained economic development for RWM, that’s why the related policy instrument should be improved. Partners’ best practices will add European level value to this effort. It is the first time that this ROP policy instrument will be implemented in a large-scale policy level in RWM, along with the experience coming out of former cross border projects, in regional and European level. Which partners are working on this? Regional Development Fund on behalf of the Region of Western Macedonia Interreg VA Estonia-Latvia The programme addresses some of the important crossborder challenges which are linked to the implementation of Europe 2020 in the Estonia-Latvia border. A strong focus of the programme is on environmental measures. It will support natural & cultural heritage in order to further develop sustainable tourism in the region, and will support the promotion of more environment-friendly behaviour of the population. The cooperation programme will promote entrepreneurship, facilitate the economic exploitation of new ideas and foster the creation of new firms. It will also help SMEs to engage in innovation processes, and will support crossborder labour mobility. It has four priorities an EPICAH will address (under the priority 2) the objective 2.1 “More diversified and sustainable use of natural and cultural heritage”  Which partners are working on this? Peipsi Center for Transboundary Cooperation European Territorial Cooperation Bavaria-Czech Republic 2014-2020 The programme addresses the most important crossborder challenges that are linked to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy in the Bavarian-Czech border region. Strategically, the programme promotes a better integration of research and development capacities on both sides of the border to exploit the full economic potential of the region. At the same time, it addresses environmental issues, in particular bio-diversity, & (increasing) challenges linked to climate change. It also protects and promotes cultural and natural heritage. Actions will be complemented by efforts to foster closer cooperation in legal and administrative questions, in order to create a fully integrated border region. To achieve these strategic objectives, the programme aims to raise the nº of crossborder business and research networks, to increase the bio-diversity, to promote the joint cultural & natural heritage, to intensify investment in education & training, and to further improve crossborder governance structure. Priority of the programme addressed by the project: Conserving & protecting the environment & promoting resource efficiency (cultural & natural heritage) Involved Regions: CZ–Pilsen Region, South Bohemia Region, Karlovy Vary Region & DE–Niederbayern, Oberpfalz, Oberfranken The most significant problem related to the programme efficiency is the lack of real intensive linkages at the institutional & personal levels. It should power methodical support for networking across the border Which partners are working on this? Regional Development Agency of the Pilsen Region Interreg VA Romania-Hungary Interreg V-A Romania Hungary Programme, which shall be implemented in the period 2014-2020, continues the financing of cooperation in the Romanian-Hungarian border area, realized in the period 2007-2013 through the Hungary-Romania CBC Programme. The Romania-Hungary Programme addresses, in priority axis 1, the joint protection and efficient use of common values and resources. Under thematic objective 6c, support can be provided to complex interventions, including the rehabilitation of various natural, cultural and historic values, as well as to facilitate contributing to the protection of the joint natural, cultural and historical heritage on both sides of the border. Support can also be provided to creating competitive thematic routes for the rehabilitated values and facilities, as well as to the promotion of these routes and to improving their accessibility. While in the previous financial period, actions in the field of natural and cultural heritage have been rather parallel than integrated, the new programme intends to support actions which lead to crossborder results and effects. This intention, together with the large diversity of actions to be supported, is good but needs to be supplemented with real common strategies through which the natural and cultural potential contributes to the development of tourist activities that lead to the economic development and territorial competitiveness of border areas.  Which partners are working on this? Satu Mare County Intercommunity Development Association Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Programme 2013-2020 The programme aims at the joint protection, development & touristic utilization of the border regions' common natural & cultural heritage The Programme will focus on 4 main priorities and EPICAH will address the 1st one: Nature and Culture Under this priority axis the following results are sought to be achieved: -Better utilization of the regions endogenous natural and cultural potential in supporting the sustainable development of local economies -Increasing social, economic and territorial cohesion by supporting joint cultural activities and activities concerning to nature preserving and protection -Improving social, economic and territorial cohesion by supporting joint cultural and nature conservation activities -Increasing the number of visitors in the programme area One of its main characteristics are continuous support for the cooperation of public institutions and communities living next to each other on either two sides of the border. The HU-SK border divides many organically cohesive cultural landscapes. The integration of these cultural landscapes already started thanks e.g. to the cooperation of national parks, joint cultural events or the development of thematic tourist paths through earlier CBC programmes. But further integration of the regions natural and cultural environment is fundamental in order to foster sustainable development and to avoid the establishment of parallel capacities, and to promote cooperation instead of competition.   Which partners are working on this?

Project summary EU regions are experiencing growing levels of air pollution, CO2 emissions, traffic congestion. In a situation of general lack of financial resources for big infrastructural investments, the development of sustainable multimodal mobility becomes one of the EU key challenges. To be more efficient, mobility systems require a greater integration at each territorial level. Therefore, to overcome the current barriers, EU regions need integrated strategies enhancing an effective modal interchange and a higher integration between land use and transport planning processes. MATCH-UP project focuses on the optimization of the places where people change between transport modes. By considering 4 main types of low-carbon means of transport (Walking/cycling; Rail transport; Public transport; Green vehicles), MATCH-UP aims at achieving significant improvements of modal interchange within 4 involved countries (IE, DE, PT, RO). The overall objective is to embed multimodal mobility strategies into the Project Partners’ policy instruments (i.e. two ROPs funded by Structural Funds and 2 local policies) by defining design requirements concerning interchange nodes and transport services for managing and coordinating the interchange, and by developing tools and methods to assess different policies and design scenarios and to define the priority level of multimodal actions. The interregional and multilevel exchange of experience process, through various activities as staff exchanges, site visits and the involvement of local stakeholder groups (e.g. policy makers, managing authorities, transport service providers) will increase skills and knowledge among policy makers and other public administration staff, thus influencing their capacity to promote new initiatives towards sustainable mobility. Beside Project Partners and local stakeholder groups, MATCH-UP will reach other Target Groups through local dissemination activities as Mobility Cafes and interregional public conferences.     €951,700.00 from 1 Jun 2018 to 30 Nov 2022 Topic Low-carbon economy Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme (OP) 2014-2020. Priority axis 5 - Sustainable Urban Development. Investment priority 4e: Promoting low-carbon strategies for all types of territories, in particular for urban areas, including the promotion of sustainable multimodal urban mobility and mitigation-relevant adaptation measures. The Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme (OP) 2014-2020 identifies urban development needs, bottlenecks and growth potentials, including the need for further investment to promote uptake of public transport and eco-friendly modes of transport, other than private motorcars. The OP outlines the need for continued development of low-carbon transport infrastructure including public transport, cycling and electrically powered vehicles. The main OBJECTIVE in relation to MATCH-UP topic is the promotion of low-carbon strategies for all types of territories, in particular for urban areas, including the promotion of sustainable multimodal urban mobility and mitigation-relevant adaptation measures. The PRIORITIES are:to achieve reduced emissions from transport in accordance with the Commission paper;to support low carbon urban mobility in designated urban centres; to contribute to meeting Ireland’s EU2020 targets for reduced GHG emissions from transport;to support the attainment of Ireland’s Smarter Travel Policy target of 20% point increase in non private car commuting.The policy instrument should be improved in the definition of the strategies for integrating all the multimodal urban mobility initiatives. The OP gives priority to cycling, walking and public transport facilities, but there is a need to improve the strategy for the projects selection in order to multiply the benefits of the low-carbon transport modes addressed by each single project. Which partners are working on this? The Southern Regional Assembly Lower Saxon multi-fund operational programme (EFRE/ESF) 2014-2020 (CCI 2014DE16M2OP001) The selected policy instrument (priority axis 3, investment priority 4e, Specific objective SZ11) is designed to reduce CO2-emissions in different sectors and within IP4e especially by future investments in alternative low-CO2-emitting drive technologies and sustainable mobility solutions. Studies for Lower Saxony investigated that the shift from cars to CO2-saving means of transport would mean a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of about 40% to 70%. Accordingly, the foreseen strategies to reduce CO2-emissions focus on the alternative drives esp. in road traffic and on the shift to less energy-intensive transport modes. This shall result in an increased availability of charging devices for electric and other energy-saving drives, which enables the use of such drive technologies. Furthermore, the access to CO2-saving transport chains shall be improved and CO2-saving offers in urban-rural mobility shall be increased in order to replace motorised private transport. The policy instrument should be IMPROVED and/or extended by addressing a more integrated approach when aiming at improved mobility options in the region. Thus, when targeting at new and multi-modal mobility offers, also the issues demand-oriented supply and the planning of rural and urban areas, e.g. design of stops and stations in town renewal projects need to be considered in order to enable the implementation of respective measures. Which partners are working on this? County of Northeim Mobility pacts in Funchal (Pacto de Mobilidade do Municìpio do Funchal) The Mobility Pacts, geared towards the establishment of protocols between several agents that intervenes in mobility and traffic, deals with mobility and traffic issues and are an important effort for the improvement of low-carbon mobility through the adoption of innovative and sustainable solutions. They were a key result of the CIVITAS MIMOSA project and today are the most relevant policy instrument held by the Municipality for a better insight of the mobility patterns in the city. Notably the Mobility Pacts were signed in 2012 by the Municipality and the relevant mobility stakeholders which agreed to work together in order to contribute towards a more sustainable mobility strategy. The mobility pacts main OBJECTIVES and PRIORITIES are:Establish a shared and consensual vision for the city's mobility strategy, based on a modal shift towards public transport, walking, cycling and green vehicles;Active involvement of the Municipality as well as relevant stakeholders, citizens and institutions in this challenge;Promoting land use planning less dependent from private car.The signing of the Mobility Pacts allowed to start implementing such mobility strategy; today Funchal needs to IMPROVE the Mobility Pacts contents by defining a more structured mobility planning, more integrated with land-use planning. In this perspective improving modal interchange could be a core issue and a more explicit challenge. Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Funchal Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for Timisoara Growth Pole The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) for Timisoara Growth Pole has been approved by the Municipality of Timisoara in December 2015 (REP/238624/DSUMP001) and is the strategic document for developing measures, projects and investment priorities towards a sustainable mobility. It covers the territories of Timisoara and other 15 smaller municipalities and aims at enhancing economic growth, social and environmental protection of Timisoara Growth Pole. The SUMP purpose is therefore to enable the development of a sustainable mobility in this territory. The SUMP STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES are: accessibility; safety and security for passengers; environment thus reducing air and noise pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption; efficiency and effectiveness in terms of cost on passenger transport and freight; quality of the urban environment.The Action Plan of the SUMP presents the major interventions that should take place in the next coming period (2016-2030) in order to improve the mobility situation in Timisoara and its peri-urban communities. Although the Action Plan addresses the issue of multimodality and some multimodal transport solutions are envisaged (e.g. the “park&ride” system) a more integrated approach towards a multimodal transportation strategy is actually missing. Such approach could help enhancing alternative means of transportation already in place or towards which a clearer investment strategy should be focused. Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Europe needs to accelerate its entry into the era of re-use. The old linear economy equation “produce, use and throw away” is not valid anymore. However, a significant portion of reusable home appliances including books, clothes, WEEEs, furniture and food are still being wasted and landfilled. Despite the waste hierarchy in force – Reduce, Re-use and Recycle – and the fact that cities and regions are backing some re-use initiatives, re-use could be much further developed. Waste management programmes include re-use but prioritise recycling, even though re-use is more environmentally and socially friendly. Thus, the project is meant to be an instrument to help boost re-use through public policies. Based on experience, 2LIFES partners have identitied that re-use is often marginally and partially explored. However, when properly managed, re-use promotes environmental sustainability as well as employment and solidarity. Unlike previous waste prevention projects, 2LIFES focuses exclusively on re-use and more specifically on re-use activities promoted by public administrations – something pending as it is usually promoted by the third sector. The project brings together advanced cities and regions in the political backing of re-use, in addition to others that are in the process of doing so. The problem of masses of reusable goods being prematurely recycled or even landfilled is cross-cutting in the whole of Europe. The main expected results are the development of new channels, infrastructures and protocols for re-use through instruments in force as well as the awareness-raising of households, businesses and administrations regarding the need to change the consumption patterns. Green jobs around re-use initiatives are also expected. Interreg Europe framework for stakeholders’ involvement is excellent for 2LIFES, since re-use initiatives require the collaboration of municipal waste services with SMEs, civil society, NGOs, social enterprises and training and employment services. €1,383,826.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Municipal Waste Management Plan of Gijon 2017-2022 The Plan establishes the strategic lines for waste management in the city of Gijon for the coming years. The Plan is articulated around the waste management hierarchy: 1. Prevention; 2. Preparation for Reuse; 3. Recycling; 4. Other type of valorisation; 5. Elimination. If until recently EMULSA efforts have mostly focused on recycling, however the Municipal Waste Management Plan in force since 2017 focuses at a high extent upon prevention and reuse. The specific priority in the Municipal Waste Management Plan the project frames within is the following: Priority “reduce waste generated and foster reuse”. The Plan contains a series of specific measures to foster reuse: - Programme for the reuse of food surpluses - Promotion of the reuse and minimisation of paper at schools - Creation of a space to deposit appliances or objects that can be reused - Increase the number of used clothing drop-off locations The Plan is conceived as an open instrument allowing the development of actions within the different priorities even if not specified already in the form of measures. Thus, actions addressing the measures specified within the priority “Reduce waste generated and foster reuse” will be complemented with additional actions for reuse learnt during the project, so that all the different waste fractions – textiles, WEEEs, food, books, home appliances and furniture- as well as related tools and infrastructures for reuse can addressed through he Municipal Waste Management Plan. Which partners are working on this? EMULSA, Municipal Company of Urban Environment Services of Gijon Waste and District Heating Aarhus Waste Plan 2015 - 2018 The Waste Plan 2015 -18 outlines the framework for the waste handling in the Municipality of Aarhus. Despite the end of the plan established in 2018, it will just continue into an extension and will be operative until a new plan is approved. The Aarhus Waste Handling Plan takes its offspring in the Danish Resource Plan: Denmark without waste. The plan focuses on the Danish approach, considering waste as a resource that can become new products while protecting the environment.   The Waste Plan for Aarhus and also the Danish Resource Plan focus on 5 areas: • Reducing the burning of waste and at the same time using the valuable contents of waste • Reducing the environmental effect from waste • Seeking quality in reuse and elimination of toxic compounds from waste • Transformation of waste handling through the strengthening of the public/private partnership • Creation of flexible frames for the municipalities to create right solutions for waste   As can be seen reuse -specifically "seeking the quality in reuse"- is one of the targets of the plan. Participation in 2LIFES will allow to learn from other partner cities and regions so that innovations in the reuse field can be accelerated, the overall efficiency of the policy instrument being thus improved. Which partners are working on this? Aarhus Waste and Heat Reuse P/A (until 31.12.2019 Aarhus Waste and Heat Department. Municipality of Aarhus). Lithuanian multi-fund Operational Programme (OP) for investing European Structural and Investment funds 2014-2020 Priority Axis 5.- Environment, sustainable use of natural resources and adaptation to climate change Thematic Objective 6.- Maintining and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency The Lithuanian multi-fund OP aims at helping Lithuania’s economic development while tackling vital issues through the development of 11 thematic objectives. Priority Axis 5 comprises the measures dedicated to environment, sustainable use of natural resources and adaptation to climate change. Thematic Objective 6 concerns specifically maintaining and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency.   The measures specifically concerned by the 2LIFES project are : Measure No. 05.2.1-APVA-R-008- Development of municipal waste management infrastructure: - Development of bio-waste collection containers and / or composting facilities for individual holdings; - Installation / reconstruction of container sites and acquisition of containers for container sites; - Installation / upgrading and / or application for reuse of bulky waste disposal sites; - Creation of disposed item reuse infrastructure - Public information on waste prevention and management issues.   Measure No. 05.2.1-APVA-K-009- Development of municipal waste recycling capacity: - Acquisition and / or modernization of separately collected and / or recycled waste treatment facilities for waste streams from mixed municipal waste streams in order to prepare them for recycling. - Public information on waste prevention and management issues.   2LIFES can provide proven experiences to face the defies in the measures of the OP concerning infrastructure and interventions for reuse.

KRWMC, Klaipeda Regional Waste Management Centre Operational Programme Competitiveness and Sustainable Development 2014-2020 Priority Axis 4A: Protection of Environment and Resource Efficient Management The OP Competitiveness and Sustainable Development 2014-2020 of the Republic of Cyprus (ESIF) overall objective is to contribute to restructure the Cypriot economy, maintain and create new jobs and ensure social cohesion, which is also in line to the National Reform Program. Priority Axis 4A - Protection of Environment and Resource Efficient Management- aims at the compliance of the Republic of Cyprus with the EU acquis in the sectors of waste management, water management, protection of biodiversity and exploitation of natural & cultural heritage for the development of green economy. For the specific sector of waste management, it includes the Investment Priority 6i - Investments in the waste sector to meet requirements of the EU acquis in the field of environment; and Specific Objective 6i.2 - Increasing the recycling rate and prevention of waste production. The latter aims at reducing the per capita percentage of waste production through several initiatives such as the collection of high quality of recycling material, the increase of the percentage of recycling material and the reuse of waste in general as sources of economic activities’ production. The instrument should be improved so that the different types of reusable waste are approached instead of addressing reuse in a generalist way. Through 2LIFES, new projects addressing the different reusable fractions and integrating a triple (or even a quadruple) helix approach will be developed in the frame of the OP. Which partners are working on this? ANEL, Nicosia Development Agency Environmental and Energy Efficiency Operational Programme (KEHOP) 2014-2020 Hungary Cohesion Policy Thematic Objective 6: Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency Priority Axis 3: Waste management and environmental remediation related developments Measure 2: Development of the sub-systems of waste preparation, disposal in relation to communal waste. The Environmental and Energy Efficiency OP aims to support sustainable growth and contribute to achieving the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The Programme will focus on 5 main priorities: 1) Adaptation to climate change impacts; 2) Development of water supply, wastewater disposal and cleaning, wastewater management; 3) Waste management and environmental remediation related developments; 4) Nature protection and wildlife protection related developments; 5) Promoting energy and the use of renewable energy sources. The 2LIFES related priority axis (nr. 3.) is dealing with the phenomenon of 3Rs, especially from the perspective of selective waste collection, awareness raising and initiatives related to public institutions. Within the thematic objective addressed and related to 2LIFES, it is stated that the proportion of reused waste is relatively low. The main goal from this perspective is to reduce the amount of unused waste, addressing the preparation, reuse and disposal of waste sub-systems related to communal waste. With the help of the project, improvements regarding the policy instrument development can be expected, namely 1) the focus on waste treatment and recycle in the initiatives financed through the instrument can be balanced, reuse being further developed; 2) initiatives on awareness raising (rarely covering reuse) will address it; 3) financed initiatives in reuse rarely connected to municipalities can be redirected. Which partners are working on this? KDRIÜ Central Transdanubian Regional Innovation Agency Nonprofit Ltd. Regional Programme of Waste Prevention (RPWP) included in the Region Marche Regional Waste Management Plan 2015  The “Regional Waste Management Plan” that includes the “Regional Program of Waste Prevention (RPWP)” of the Region Marche was adopted on 14 April 2015. It covers municipal and special waste. The responsible authority for the Plan is the Regional Council of the Marche Region. the Plan (Legislative Decree n. 152/06) foresees a provisional scenario of 5 years (2015-2020) but it never expires, being updated or reviewed depending on the needs and under the jurisdiction of the the 5 Territorial Assemblies concerned. The macro-objectivesof the Regional Waste Management Plan are (1) to achieve optimal performance in terms of integrated management of municipal waste and (2) to encourage the correct management of special waste. The Regional Programme of Waste Prevention (RPWP) within it aims specifically at the prevention of urban waste, focusing on (1) activated prevention activities in the Marche Region; (2) Identification of Waste Fractions prevention priorities; (3) strategic objectives: influencing a permanent change in behaviour; waste prevention oriented to waste fractions with high environmental pressure; indicators for waste prevention; (4) Planning of activities; and (5) Monitoring of activities. Through 2LIFES an optimized implementation of the Regional Waste Management Plan is expected, with particular attention to the promotion of reuse centres by municipalities, the use of indicators for reuse and to the application of the recent Pay-As-You-Throw law.
