A delegation of 40 participants selected by the Tianjin Science and Technology Committee (TSTC) will be the first arriving in Italy after the summer break, on September 1.
The theme chosen for this year's training is "Eco-city Building and Innovation Management", focusing on different aspects specifically requested by the TSTC and which define an eco-city.
Building ecological cities requires meeting very demanding goals and innovation plays a major role in this respect. The lectures and site visits organised during the course present the current situation and future perspectives for the promotion of innovation in Europe and Italy, as well as policies, best practices and tools to develop a self-sufficient and environmentally-friendly city. Each day will focus on a different topic: eco-building, sustainable mobility, integrated waste management, climate change and emission reduction, energy conservation and efficiency, innovation management.
Among the site visits it is worth mentioning the one at the most advanced concentrated solar power installation with thermal energy storage, with the cooperation of Angelantoni Industrie S.p.A.
