Networking with other EU projects allows for the establishment of synergies that can profitably be exploited to secure the achievement of targeted objectives. The coordination of the networking with other EU projects is based at Eco Recycling offices. This sub-action aims at establishing a connection between the implemented project and activities concerning the water treatment carried on, at the national and European levels, in the framework of LIFE and non-LIFE projects. The main objective is to create synergies that can profitably be exploited to secure the achievement of targeted objectives and to share the basins of contacted stakeholders. Partners of different projects will also be invited to join the main dissemination events or to come for an individual visit. Additional LIFE projects and HORIZON projects that can develop synergies with the present proposal will be identified during the project.
Networking activities have already begun:
- LIFE16 GIE/IT/000645: LIFE WEEE- Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE): treasures to recover! (https://www.lifeweee.eu/lifeWeee_en/) : On 24th of May 2021 Eco Recycling team conducted a videocall with the responsible of the LIFE WEEE project. Possible points of contact between the two projects were found by considering how the administrative aspects of the LIFE WEEE project combine with the technical ones of the LIFE DRONE project, and in particular how productive it could be to combine the two to create an integrated reality between institutions and the industry.
- LIFE16 ENV/IT/000442 – LIFE SAVE – Solar Aided Vehicle Electrification (https://www.life-save.eu/en/) : On 23th of June 2022 Eco Recycling team conducted a videocall with the responsible of the LIFE SAVE project.
