Projects don´t run automatically, but also live from personal interaction and discussions!

The PLEEC project partners will come together again and will meet this time
from 25 - 28 march in the Finnish partner city Turku.
Situated on the southwest coast of Finland Turku is the oldest city of the country and the economical centre of the region. Together with the Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) Turku represents a many-sided host for this meeting.  
The start of the event will be on Tuesday afternoon (25 march) with a meeting of the Executive Board members. Being composed of the coordinator and all WP Leaders, the Excecutive Board is the supervisory body and therefore responsible for the effective and efficient implementation of the project. 
The workshops taking place on the following days will deal with Work Packages 3, 4, and 5 - we will elaborate energy efficiency recommendations from the three key perspectives: technology driven efficiency potentials (WP3), structure driven efficiency potentials (WP4) and behavior driven efficiency potentials (WP5).

We are looking forward to inspiring days with successful collaboration and innovative outcomes in a host city which has much going for!
