Final event | Houseful, looking ahead
5-year project ends with an online conference on its circular solutions and services for the housing sector and how they will play out in the future.
Houseful’s online final event, set for 26 April, will provide two sessions to share the knowledge, the experiences acquired over 5 years while developing and implementing 11 circular solutions in the housing sector. It will be a place where the project partners and some international experts in the building and water sectors can create synergies and set up a joint future based on what they have learned in the past.
Several projects and experts in the field of circular economy, water and building sectors, but also policymakers at EU and national levels, will be invited to take part in the event to share the main goals of Houseful and look ahead together.
