Within the framework of the predetermined activities related to the successful implementation of the BECircular project, a 5-day “train the trainers” workshop on Bioeconomy was organized and implemented.
In the first part of the interactive workshop, started in Kozani between 24 and 25 November 2022, CluBE having the role of the trainer covered the introductory theoretical part combining it with an event in the city’s central square, related to the European Week for Waste Reduction. In the context of this event, the partners gathered in the city’s central square to witness some actions towards climate neutrality, recycling and citizens’ engagement.
The first part of the workshop completed some days later, on 12.12.2022, in Amyntaio, where the partners met in a hybrid form. The partners had the opportunity to visit DETEPA’s facilities (the municipal district heating company of Amyntaio) that covers the whole biomass supply chain, using biomass to heat its district heating network, and its operation is an ideal example to move from theory to practice.
The second part of the workshop took place remotely (videoconference) between 19 and 20 January 2023 and provided the trainers with detailed information related to EU and national projects on bioeconomy that CluBE is implementing. The workshop ended with a wrap-up discussion summarizing all the activities.
