Impressions from the ECO INNOVERA Conference in Copenhagen

conferenceCopenhagen, the European Green Capital 2014: From September 16th to 18th our team participated at the Conference “Boosting Eco-Innovation through Cooperation in Research and Development” organized by the ECO INNOVERA network. After four years of collaboration, exchange and networking with European, associated partners and networks on Eco-Innovations the ECO INNOVERA consortium held its final event bringing together researchers, practitioners and public representatives.

It was a great conference with stimulating talks and inputs and great contribution. We received very positive feedback and useful recommendations from the other participants and environmental experts for our ECO INNOVERA funded project (SMC-Excel: Enhancing Sustainability by Mass Customization for European Consumer Electronics) presented by our research associate Stephan Hankammer.
