FosterREG intends to build capacity for civil servants at national, regional and local level in relation with policy design, planning, financing and management of integrated urban regeneration for sustainable energy uptake
Having analyzed existing framework, management procedures and financing as well as identified barriers for implementing Energy Efficiency measures in urban regeneration and developed new strategies and proposals for improvement in regulation, financing and management of energy aspects in urban regeneration planning, FosterREG’s next objectives will be to build capacity for civil servants at national, regional and local level in relation with policy design, planning, financing and management of integrated urban regeneration for sustainable energy uptake.
FosterREG capacity building activities will start in July 2016.
Development of training materials to be widely distributed among civil servants, both at national and European level.
Building on project prior results, training materials addressing key issues related to regulation, management and financing will be developed. The materials will target appropriate levels of the public sector, highlighting best practices and addressing barriers and challenges identified during previous work. The materials developed will be publicly available through the project’s website.
The most appropriate means of knowledge transfer will be used, and materials such as guidelines, white papers or leaflets addressing key issues will be developed.
Development of civil servants´ knowledge and skills about: integrated planning, stakeholders´ engagement, financing energy efficiency, and available technologies and solutions.
FosterREG training activities will take place in the second year of project duration (July 2016 – July 2017).
Training activities will take place on national level (in Spain, Croatia, the Netherlands, Poland) and European level. The activities will be focused on providing public officers with capacities and skills to improve the effectiveness of processes and structures dealing with integration of EE in urban regeneration within their public administrations. Training activities will take form of training sessions/workshops, distribution of training materials.
