From the generation of the first project ideas to the successful
implementation of projects in intercultural and multidisciplinary teams, the
work of researchers and project managers involves a wide range of challenges.
IncoNet EaP is running a summer school for young researchers and project
managers from the Eastern Partnership Countries, EU Member States and
Associated Countries active in the field of 'energy efficiency'. The aim of
the training is to learn more about project management processes in
international scientific projects particularly related to Horizon 2020 as
well as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to support mobility.

One of the great challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals will be finding ways of lifting populations out of poverty, which is often associated with increased consumption and production, while at the same time dealing with emissions and meeting environmental targets. The question is how to create economic value which also benefits society. Smart technologies, sustainable business models and circular economy solutions are already being developed, but experts say they need to be scaled up, and fast.
The eco-village concept provides a community-led and owned model for green development, promoting food security, resilience and the ability to adapt to climate change. In a short period of time, EU-funded eco-village activities in Tanzania have shown strong results - for example, providing inspiration and support to more than 20,000 people on the island of Pemba, as they adapt to the changing environment.
