The Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA), partner of the Interreg MED Renewable Energy project, will organise and host a hybrid conference to showcase and disseminate the ETU Initiative. The event will take place on the 16th and 17th March 2022, and participants can join either in person in Barcelona, Spain, or connect to the sessions online.
The aim of the conference is to present the ETU Initiative as an evolving platform enabling knowledge transfer and transnational cooperation between European projects and initiatives committed to climate adaptation and welfare, with an open call to join us. To this end, the conference is structured on two levels: on day 1 we will establish a dialogue between the ETU pillars and other EU initiatives and projects involved in the energy transition. On day 2, the conference will focus on the dialogue between the ETU Initiative and regional initiatives in the Mediterranean and Africa.
The Ecosystemic Transition Unit (ETU) Initiative has been created and promoted by Interreg MED Renewable Energy as a platform to foster the ecosystem approach to energy transition, capitalising on knowledge transfer and transnational cooperation across the Mediterranean region. The ETU Initiative involves local authorities and entities involved in energy transition projects through their Regional Groups.
The conference will be attended by relevant representatives of key stakeholders at local, national, European, MED and Africa region level.
