Approached in the right way, the fast growing field of waste-to-energy presents opportunities for the development of common resources across borders. The Coolsweep project seeks to support research driven partnerships between leading European stakeholders within waste-to-energy.
The Coolsweep project partners include 5 established research driven triple helix clusters, one cluster under development and a specialist cluster analysis organisation. The project focuses on developing transnational cluster cooperation in a new area of smart specialization.
The general aim of the project is to identify possible synergies and partnerships between public and private stakeholders and knowledge institutions within the field of waste-to-energy in six different European regions. This will support the development of new businesses based on utilising waste as the feed material for efficient sustainable energy production and more effective use of the by-products from the energy generation.
Coolsweep is project is funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme.
