About the project ECOSMARTCITIES
With constant growth of urban locations in terms of area, inhabitants and economy urban locations are in a strong need for innovative waste management solutions that will increase quality of waste management system, increase us of RES, cut costs, make operations more efficient and have less negative impact on the environment. With its diverse pilot actions, capacity building of various target groups and evaluation and development of innovative and sustainable waste management solutions, project aims at providing solutions to these needs and fulfilling specific Programme objective of involving institutional actors into cooperation in cross-border area. Such integrated approach towards cooperation is in line with Programme vision of intense and diverse cooperation, shared knowledge, as well as permanent enrichment of economic institutional and individual relationships. Besides, project contributes to promoting good neighborly relations and encouraging their harmonic, balanced and sustainable development.
Implementation of different pilot actions as well as capacity building actions throughout 16 months of the project will enable testing of pilot actions at locations different in area, size, economic development and culture. Such project concept will enable larger replication potential and sustainability as well as development of better and more suitable waste management solutions.
The project involves the establishment of a modern waste management system that includes equipment for underground containers associated with advanced waste management software by mobile applications, thereby achieving time efficiency, reducing transport costs and ensuring efficient human resource management. Project activities aimed at strengthening the capacity of all stakeholders involved in waste management systems and drawing up plans and manuals that will provide key stakeholders with effective waste management guidelines in line with the latest European trends.
Through this project cities are taking a role of lighthouse cities in the field of waste management in cross-border area.
