The 2 Seas Monitoring Committee gathered two weeks ago in London to evaluate new project proposals. The member state representatives approved 4 new projects which brings the total number of Interreg 2 Seas projects to 44.
The E2C project will invest in research in transformation of electricity surpluses into chemicals and fuels. By making use of renewable electricity, E2C aims at lowering the carbon footprint.
Solarise will boost the adoption of solar energy by historical/public buildings and households (with focus on low-income families). As such, Solarise supports the EU to meet its target of 20% energy consumption from renewables by 2020.
Grassification will apply a multi-dimensional approach to roadside grass clippings refining in order to optimize it into a viable value chain for the bio based and circular economy.
Horti-blueC will increase the adoption of new circular economy solutions in the 2 Seas area by sustainable up-cycling of agro-, agrofood and fisheries residues in horticulture.
Keep an eye out on our website’s dedicated section for approved projects. More information on the newly approved projects will be publicised very soon.
With the approval of these projects, Interreg 2 Seas has now committed € 126 m ERDF. There is still € 115 m of funding available.
