ECOLE is our last new classic project of the first call in the period 2021-2027 to be presented.
Industrial Parks suffer from an image of polluters, but also from increasing energy costs and a lack of knowledge about the circular economy approach. ECOLE wants to change this to accelerate the transition to a circular and resource-efficient industry in the Alps. To achieve this, the project will establish a systemic thinking community model, including policy recommendations as well as action plans prepared by local communities to integrate circular economy in their local industrial sites. Ultimately, ECOLE will contribute to transforming industrial parks in the Alps into more circular, resilient and sustainable eco-industrial parks, better prepared to face climate and economic crises.
