On May 31st, representatives of VOLTERRA travelled to Brussels to be part of the EU Green Week Summit organized by the European Commission during the last week of May across different countries in the EU. At the event they were able to listen to speakers from a wide range of organizations participating in the LIFE Programme and representatives of the European Commission.
The event on Wednesday was divided into different sessions, of which a few were dedicated to providing information and tips for organizations aspiring to compete in this year’s LIFE calls. On the other hand, the main theme of this week’s summit was Green Jobs creation, making future employment sustainable in both economic and enivronmental terms.
Finally, during the last session of the day, individual networking sessions were held in order to meet and discuss experiences with other LIFE project participants, meet new possible partners and also communicate with the European Commission and Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises (EASME) representatives. During that time, the project leaflet was distributed.
