HOOP has been officially launched! This new Horizon-2020 project will invest in local initiatives to extract valuable resources from urban biowaste and wastewater in order to make innovative bio-based products. Advancing Europe’s circular economy agenda, as a main pillar of the European Green Deal, HOOP will provide direct Project Development Assistance to municipalities so they can build their administrative, technical, economic, financial and legal expertise. This project will help enhance the return on investments by reusing resources, creating jobs, and developing local bioeconomy capacity.

As partner of the project ACR+ is looking forward to developing and coordinating the HOOP European network of follower cities. Not only those cities will interact with one another and the HOOP consortium through an online platform, but they will also have the opportunity to establish contacts with other territories sharing similar interests and challenges when it comes to bio-waste management. Thanks to the project, experts from the follower cities exchange experiences, attend relevant workshops, or meet with other experts during one-on-one peer review sessions. A call for follower cities will soon be launched. Stay tuned!
