Ecomondo is scheduled for Nov. 6-9 at Italy’s Rimini Expo Center. The event, held under the Italian Exhibition Group banner, confirms its role as a European reference point for the green economy and the circular economy at the top institutional level. For visitors, buyers and exhibitors at the Italian Exhibition Group Expo, it’s an opportunity to learn more about the possibilities of access to financing when going green.
A close relationship has been formed through the years with various interlocutors and organizations of the European Commission, which has become a constant presence in the program of events. This year, the participation of the European Commission in Ecomondo is set to be further strengthened by the presence of an EC stand.
European projects were financed via four different programs; COSME, LIFE, Horizon 2020 and EMFF. They are set to be showcased at Ecomondo, in the south foyer, by means of the European Union’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises. The aim is to promote European financing in the Circular Economy context. The Commission, through EASME, will bring 37 projects from all over Europe to the expo, bearing witness to how financing has stimulated the introduction of circular processes in various contexts. The companies are set to alternate in the six exhibit spaces around the stand’s perimeter.
EASME officials plan to be at the disposal of Ecomondo attendees interested in discovering more about the possibilities of financing provided by the various European programs. With a speed dating format, visitors, buyers and exhibitors should be able to book a meeting with the EASME agency’s experts.
Another European Commission initiative will be the creation, at Ecomondo, of a sort of virtual tour among the exhibitors who in the past have already received European financing, indicated with a sticker with the European Union logo outside the individual stands.
