Monitoring Committee approves 4 projects

In July, the Monitoring Committee decided to refer back 7 projects and as such invite them to rework and resubmit their Application Forms.

By the first available deadline of the 10 October 2016, 4 projects resubmitted a proposal.

The Joint Secretariat is very happy to announce that all 4 resubmitted projects have now been approved by the Monitoring Committee. This brings the total number of 2 Seas projects at 25.

ICAReS (Innovation Cluster Accelerating Remote Sensing) will develop a cross border innovation cluster and create the necessary conditions for innovation in the field of remote sensing and advanced data communication & processing, based on needs of priority sectors nature, agriculture and water & infrastructure. The project will be led by the Municipality of Woensdrecht (NL) and will bring together 11 partners from England, Belgium and the Netherlands.

SAIL (Stay Active and Independent for Longer in the 2 Seas Area) will stimulate active ageing and longer independent living by identifying new ways of helping people remain independent for longer, more self-reliant and less dependent on traditional health care and social care services. 11 partners from all 2 Seas member states will be working together under the lead of the HZ University of Applied Sciences, located in Vlissingen (NL).

TRIPLE-A (stimulating the Adoption of low-carbon technologies by home-owners through increased Awareness and easy Access) will seek to achieve market acceleration in the adoption of low-carbon technologies by home-owners in single-family housing. This will be achieved through co-creation and the implementation of the Triple-A method, that, while increasing awareness of low-carbon technologies, simultaneously secures easy access to technologies that fit home-owners’ individual needs and resources.

WRC (Water Resilient Cities) aims to improve the adaptive capacity of cities to heavy rainfall by demonstrating how SUDS (Sustainable Urban Draining Systems) can be retrofitted in public areas normally constrained by existing uses and infrastructure (above or below ground), or ‘historic environment’ protection. WRC brings together 13 partners from all member states and will be led by Plymouth City Council.
The 2 Seas Joint Secretariat wishes all projects the best of luck in implementing their activities.
