Trvalo udržateľné modely obnovy pre inteligentné mestá

Cieľom projektu EU-GUGLE je ukázať uskutočniteľnosť modelov obnovy budov na budovy s takmer nulovou potrebou energie na základe realizácie v šiestich pilotných mestách. Ďalším cieľom je opakovaná realizácia takýchto postupov v inteligentných mestách a komunitách Európy do roku 2020.

Informačné centrum EU-GUGLE

Zastupujete mesto alebo verejne zainteresovanú skupinu a máte otázky k vypracovaniu projektu trvalo udržateľnej obnovy? Informačné centrum EU-GUGLE je tu pre Vás!


Kampaň “Moja inteligentná mestská štvrť”

Kampaň “Moja inteligentná mestská štvrť” je hlavným sprostredkovateľským kanálom, prostredníctvom ktorého sa budú získané skúsenosti zo šiestich pilotných miest odovzdávať mestám zaoberajúcim sa prípravou ich vlastnej stratégie obnovy. Zúčastnené mestá budú priebežne informované o pokroku dosiahnutom v rámci projektu a majú možnosť podieľať sa na aktivitách spojených s výmenou poznatkov s ostatnými mestami.
