Successful greenXpo Conference Efficient Interfaces in Eco-Innovation

With this new edition of our newsletter we are happy to present you some of the impressions from our Conference “Efficient Interfaces in Eco-Innovation” held last week in Jyväskylä, Finland with an European audience also welcoming a delegation from China.  

The meeting, reach in networking and interaction, focussed on facilitating knowledge-sharing amongst participants on how to (better) design regional policies taking into consideration the eco-innovation concept. Valuable insights could be gained, and concrete examples were mentioned how to transfer them into daily work in the attendees’ countries. In a joint effort, the greenXpo project, EURADA, the City of Jyväskylä, and Jykes RDA organised the event.

Around Jyväskylä, all regional stakeholders committed themselves to a 30 years development plan approaching the ultimate goal to live as a region in the limit of one planet’s resources. Local companies presented in pitches their unique eco-innovative approach helping to reach the aim of zero CO2 and zero waste even earlier. To widen the view results, from the last INTERREG period were presented, and an UNDP representative suggested to present greenXpo results during the next World Forum of Local Economic Development.

Interactive discussion were organised around key questions like what role do the stakeholders in a specific value chain have? How the greenXpo approach can be deepened?  

Parts of the event’s frame were field visits to local companies, giving an impressive insight into the daily work of the factory and explaining its integration into the circular value chain of the Region. A highlight of the Conference was the joint dinner, which allowed experiencing a first glance of the new Kangas area of Jyväskylä, with catering in the old factory building.

The Jyväskylä Event on Efficient Interfaces in Eco-Innovation was a full success and we are happy to discuss the progress in this important sector further with you and the eco-innovation community!
