EduFootprint has actively participated in the 1st EEB Community Annual Congress, which was organized by the MEDNICE horizontal MED project from 4th to 6th October in Nice, France.

The project representatives had the opportunity to network with the rest of the MED projects dealing with energy efficiency in public buildings, aiming at creating synergies and sharing knowledge and good practices.

The first day EduFootprint took part in a series of round tables where the different projects of the Efficient Buildings community shared their first outcomes, as well as the problems encountered and solutions provided to overcome them.

On the second day in the morning, a roundtable with high level speakers provided the projects with an insight of EU policies and financing opportunities for energy efficiency. Following this session, the attendees could also learn from the experience and results of some completed EU projects on Energy Efficiency in public buildings. In the afternoon the projects attended an interesting, practical workshop on “Internal contracting”, an innovative financing schemes for implementing energy efficiency projects in public buildings.

Finally, an internal meeting of the MEDNICE project was held on the third day, where all modular projects of the Efficient Building Community were invited.
