The H2020 INCOVER project comes to an end…
Monday, 19 August 2019
Last month, the final Innovation Workshop for the INCOVER project took place in Almería, Spain. The agenda included a site visit to El Toyo WWTP (one of the four project demonstration sites) and a Masterclass on financial support opportunities to accelerate commercialisation.
To ensure the project results are exploited after the completion of the project, Isle led WP5 “Boosting market update of INCOVER technologies” and was responsible for the development of post-INCOVER strategies to accelerate the market access of the technologies demonstrated.
