About the Project
The e-KLIMA Project, funded by the Green Fund, taking into account the recent new legislation of Greece, regarding the Energy Communities and the National Strategy for the Climate’ change adaptation, is promoting the finding of good practices fighting the climate change. The information searching regarding environmental issues such as the legislation, the related projects and the stakeholders (Public authorities, Municipalities, Citizens, Chambers, Academic and Educational Institutes, NGOs etc.) may presents some difficulties.
The development of a good practices’ repository in national and international level, constitutes an essential tool for the competent or interested organizations in decision making issues related to the implementation of the appropriate adaptation or mitigation actions addressing the climate change.
Project’s Main Scope
The project’s main scope is to develop a digital open data repository for the promotion and the dissemination of the good practices, policies and actions related to the climate change.
In addition, the objective of the project is to provide full (scientific and operational) information to the potential stakeholders (Ministry of Environment, regions, municipalities, non-governmental organizations, research institutes and universities) on good practices, actions and policies on climate change. The outcome of the project is expected to make a decisive contribution enhancing regions to develop regional climate change adaptation plans, and therefore the citizens of the regions are expected to be recipients of the best practices.
The repository will include the following lists
- Existing European, National and Regional Projects, as best practices regarding the climate change
- Potential Stakeholders
- Legal framework regarding the climate change, in European, National and Regional Level
European Regional Framework for Cooperation (ERFC)
ERFC, taking stock from a host of EU networks of excellence, in which its founders participated or initiated, is established in a converge region (Western Greece), with an ever-expanding network of offices in other Greek & EU Regions. ERFC, aims at serving as a best example of bottom up Institution Building effort towards EU Integration and regional competitiveness, playing a key role, contributing in the implementation of EU Regulations and Directives through its participation in EU funded networks & projects, at interregional level. Mainstreaming EU project recommendations into National & Regional policies is its ultimate goal.
Territorial Co-operation is enhanced as ERFC’s members and associates are key EU Integration executive persons, Public Bodies, Academic Institutions and Civil Societies, primarily from EU but also from the rest of the word, securing the creation of economies of scale.
Further structuring of ERFC is expected to take place in the frame of EGTC _ European Grouping for Territorial Co-operation.
Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering and Environmental Technology
The Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering & Environmental Technology (LBEET) was founded in 1990 and since then is conducting research on development, mathematical modeling, optimization and control of bioprocesses with special emphasis on environmental protection and wastes valorization via biotechnological production of high-added value chemicals and/or biofuels.
LBEET is conducting fundamental and applied research covering a wide spectrum of activities from the identification of key-mechanisms taking place in biochemical processes at the lab-scale up to the design and optimization of bioreactors and processes in industrial scale. LBEET is also using modern environmental tools and techniques such as Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Geographical Information Systems (G.I.S.) coupled with optimization methods for developing schemes for the optimal integrated management of municipal solid wastes.
