Having started on the 1 of January 2013, for a total duration of 30 months, EMILIE project is approaching its finish line. Lead by the AREA Science Park (IT), partners from CAPENERGIES (FR), CIRCE (ES), IAT (ES), IJS (SI) and REAK (HR) are confidently wrapping up the final EMILIE activities and presenting the results achieved to the relevant stakeholders – both in Brussels and locally.

Nevertheless, joint efforts on the promotion of new technologies and adoption of policies on energy efficiency in tertiary building will continue, since the partnership invites all interested stakeholders (and primarily clusters and associations) to join the newly formed EMILIE collaborative network.


Trieste – Rijeka – Ljubljana study tour

During the 27th and 28th of May 2015, EMILIE project partners, local SMEs, public authorities, university representatives and other invited stakeholders had an opportunity to visit the three EMILIE pilot plants: SunLab in Italy, SunCool in Croatia, and InfraSUN in Slovenia, and take part in mutual learning sessions during which the partners’ technical experts presented the pilots and gave insights into first measuring results.

Technical workshops for SMEs and PAs

Starting from November 2014 when the first workshop for small and medium enterprises was held at the premises of AREA Science Park, up until the May of 2015, a set of technical workshops targeting the SMEs and public authorities’ representatives was held in EMILIE partner countries, with an aim to present the mapped innovative technologies and the pilot actions outcomes. Workshop participants had an opportunity to listen to expert technical presentations, but also to visit the pilots.

EMILIE success in Marseille and Nice!

On the 23rd of April 2015, the project French team had the opportunity to present EMILIE and its 6 pilot actions to the sector group Intelligent Energy of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), at their official meeting in Marseille, on Energy Efficiency in Buildings. The EEN Network helps small and medium-sized enterprises make the most of business opportunities in the EU and beyond, enabling also energy-efficiency SMEs to plug into new business opportunities around Europe, thus being highly coherent with project EMILIE’s goals.

Let’s capitalize on project results

Almost 30 participants took part in the 5th EMILIE Capitalization meeting that was held in Trieste on the 27th of May 2015, highlighting various aspects of energy savings in the public and private tertiary sector buildings. Experiences of different Mediterranean regions were presented, followed by an interactive discussion on concrete actions for innovation for building energy efficiency, based on the Emilie exploitation of pilot plants data.

The EMILIE network is on its way

Project EMILIE ends on 30 June 2015, and what comes next? EMILIE partners invite you to join the EMILIE NETWORK that aims to strengthen the local research and innovation capacities with a cohesive approach by exchanging information, sharing best practices, supporting project development and the diffusion of new technologies related to building energy efficiency. 

MED 2007-2013 programme ends with a bang

Symbolically marking the end of a programme period, on the 18 June 2015 a workshop entitled ‘Innovation for renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions in Mediterranean regions and cities’ was organized in Brussels by the MED programme in cooperation with the projects EMILIE and GRASP, and hosted by the Delegation of the Catalonia Government to the European Union.
