IMEAS Final Event

Workshop 29/11/2019
Published on the platform: November 7, 2019

The IMEAS Interreg Alpine Space project, dedicated to support integrated and sustainable energy policy planning in the Alpine Space is coming to an end.

The project partners are pleased to invite you to their final event. The event is organized in the framework of the EUSALP Annual Forum. You will have the opportunity to attend the Forum Sessions on 28th and 29th and to play a part in our workshop.

During the workshop, project partners and experts will share their experience from the project activities and discuss the key findings and potential applications to other contexts. Conclusions and recommendations will be shared in the closing plenary.

Join us in discovering the main results of IMEAS, such as tools and guidelines, case studies, energy roadmaps and the IMEAS Platform. These deliverables contribute in overcoming the difficulties of public officers, policy makers and technical experts in defining and implementing low-carbon energy strategies.

You can meet us also in the networking and exhibition areas of the EUSALP Annual Forum on 28th November to discuss the findings from territorial joint actions and roadmaps, and to test our tools.
