Project Meeting BIOREGIO: Biofuels and Agricultural Innovation
by Kamila Ondrasova
In mid-May, the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra welcomed the participants of the fifth international meeting on the Interreg Europe BIOREGIO project, which focuses on regional circular economy models and the best available technology for biological materials. Three faculties of SUA in Nitra are participating in the project - Faculty of European Studies and Regional Development, Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Economics and Management.
The project consortium consists of eight partners from six different countries (Finland, Spain, Slovakia, Greece, France and Romania). Partners are working with the different policy tools available in their countries, whether at national or regional level, and exchange knowledge on the implementation of best available technologies and collaborative models.
SUA in Nitra, as a project partner, closely cooperates with the Office of the Nitra Self-governing Region (ÚNSK), which is part of the BIOREGIO project as the main stakeholder and as the institution is responsible for the policy instrument - the Economic and Social Development Program of the NSK. The Department of Regional and Rural Development of the FESRD participates in the elaboration of the program at the SUA in Nitra.
The next international project meeting is due to take place this November in France.
