Five H2020 projects team up to organise a policy conference on circular policies next 27th September
19 Sep 2022
Five Horizon 2020 projects - CityLoops, Scalibur, ValueWaste, HOOP and WaysTUP! - have teamed up to promote innovative solutions and bring down the regulatory barriers blocking a more sustainable future. To this end, this group of project will host a policy conference in Brussels to present their recommendations on circular policites for changing the biowaste system and discuss them with European policymakers and stakeholders.
The event will see the participation of several European companies and cities involved to various degrees in the five organising projects, they will present their experiences and achievements related to different topics, from biowaste prevention to insect for feed production, up to citizen awareness. The panellists will also share their concerns and thoughts about the barriers limiting the uptake of circular economy solutions. The event will therefore be important for EU policymakers to learn lessons from the ground, in order to improve the regulatory framework.
There will be five panels during the day:
- PANEL 1 – Recycling targets and treatment plants
- PANEL 2 – Waste and by-products
- PANEL 3 – Insects for animal feed
- PANEL 4 – Biowaste prevention
- PANEL 5 – Citizen awareness
- PANEL 6 – Investment needs
From CityLoops side, it will be the City of Porto, represented by its Deputy Mayor, Daniel Freitas, presenting on what the City has implemented thanks to CityLoops.
