Launch of RES4CITY StartUp Europe Awards

The second half of the event focused on the official launch of the upcoming RES4CITY StartUp Europe Awards, which is looking for disruptive initiatives in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency in cities. A perfect example is the LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0 technology, a project that allows the creation of new organic waste logistics companies for the production of biogas in wastewater treatment plants and for self-consumption.

The StartUp Europe Accelerator is an initiative promoted by the European Commission and implemented by the Finnova Foundation in collaboration with StartUp Europe. It is an open innovation tool that allows companies to identify talented startups capable of solving today’s challenges in multiple areas. Its mission is to help startups and scaleups become more efficient, smarter and more successful. These awards are a useful tool to promote knowledge sharing, add value to the entrepreneurial ecosystem and help startups to grow and position themselves in the market.
