ECOPOL Conference, “Accelerating eco-innovation policies”
The ECOPOL conference “Accelerating eco-innovation policies” will focus on policy approaches and instruments boosting the uptake of eco-innovative solutions, especially in the field of waste management and resource efficiency. The conference will be also complemented with a joint session focusing on systemic eco-innovation, in cooperation with ECOINNOVERA platform, which is one of the ECOPOL partners. The conference is organised by the public partnership ECOPOL and hosted by the Managing Authority of Attika Region.
The ECOPOL partnership has identified over 150 eco-innovative policy practices and tools in the areas of waste and recycling, green public procurement, and internationalisation of eco-innovative businesses. Going beyond sole identification, ECOPOL has been able to launch a number of concrete implementations of these policy instruments. It has developed a set of tools and methods to support the process of transferring and implementing new instruments.
