EU Green Week Partner Event - #EUGreenWeek

This meeting, co-organised by ESPP, Biorefine Cluster Europe and ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, linked science, industry, agriculture and policy makers. EU-funded projects on nutrient sustainability and phosphorus recycling (Horizon2020, Interreg, LIFE…) and national and company nutrient projects presented, enabled dialogue and synergies. PERM addressed how to improve uptake of project recommendations by policy makers and users, through to market, and identified perspectives for research and policy, and implementation gaps.

In parallel to PERM, ESPP is updating our online ‘inventory’ of nutrient-related R&D projects here.

Proposals are welcome for presentations of studies into what factors in nutrient R&D projects improve uptake of conclusions by policy makers, industry and users.
