Eco-Innovators Day in Brussels
The first ever "Eco-innovators Day" took place in Brussels on 8th and 9th of November. The conference gathered more than 200 contractors of Eco-innovation projects and European Commission representatives to exchange knowledge and best practices. This event was also the opportunity to present the first Eco-innovation initiative's results since its launch back in 2008.
A special matchmaking exercise gave participants the opportunity to meet other participants specially profiled to generate potential business partnerships. More than 70 manufacturers, marketing experts, sales representatives, and multipliers from across Europe took advantage of this networking session. (http://ec.europa.eu/environment/eco-innovation/events/2012/eco-innovators-day_en.htm).
ERUTAN appreciated to be one of the projects presenting and ‘warming’ up the discussion with some input from our project.
Technasium Den Hulster
As already in 2011, the Technasium Den Hulster, a local school, visits ERUTAN for a discussion about the developments. The pupils are invited to think of more innovative ideas now. We are looking forward to hear and see their results!
