  • European partnership as an instrument for added value. Fundación Comunidad Valenciana- Región Europea

Convergence towards the competitiveness objective:

  • Before 2007 the Valencian Region was included in the former Objective 1.

  • After January 2007 our Region was included in the Objectivecompetitiveness and employment (formerly Obj. 2).

    • Decrease of the 65% of ERDF Structural Funds for Valencian Region

  • The Valencian Region created in 2003 the Fundación Comunidad Valenciana - Región Europea to tackle this transition:

    • Broker of partnerships and spreading results of projects at a European level.

    • Activating main economic areas of our Region.

    EU PROJECTS


    Adopt a strategy for eu funding l.jpg

    Adopt a strategy for EU funding

    • Calls for proposals:

    • Don’t wait for the calls to be published

    • Identify the strategy of your organisations, stakeholders, region, etc.

    • Select strategic partners

    • Identify the most suitable funding schemes

    • Identify the role you are most likely to play in a consortium

    • Networking:

    • Become an evaluator (if possible)

    • Join EU associations/networks/platforms

    • Be present/exhibit at relevant conferences and EU weeks


    The european dimension of the project l.jpg

    The European dimension of the project

    EU projects should address problems at European level far beyond the specific interests of a Member State

    The proposed solution must have a direct impact at the European level

    Participants must be located in a Member State or in an Associated State (3 usually is the minimum threshold and 5 can be a good compromise). Participation of third countries is welcome when international dimension is requested


    Slide30 l.jpg

    • EU projects are good!

    • A good ‘road map’ for projects allows synergies

      • E.g. Germoplasm bank in the Albufera of Valencia, developed through all the LIFE Nature projects

  • Attraction of funding

  • Projects build issuecommunities:

    • The EU projects allow to identify and co-operate with most of the stakeholders, and allow holistic approaches to the solutions

  • European added value of EU projects

    •  Mutual learning, transparency, peer review


  • Slide31 l.jpg

    • BUT be aware:

    • You need an infrastructure able to assimilate the obligations

    • Define the viability and avoid the risk of dependance Is there a life after LIFE?

    • Don’t forget theothers!

      • You and your partners are not the owners of the issue. E.g. You cannot do a project on wilderness without consulting the hunters, the ecologists…

  • Be flexible!

    •  Be proactive in extending the model to the other possible beneficiaries. E.g. If a neighbour town may benefit, try to invite them.


  • Slide32 l.jpg

    • Some factors of success:

      • Innovation

      • Transnationality

      • Bottom-up approach

      • Corresponding to an EU policy

      • Multiplying effect

      • Equal opportunities

      • New technologies

      • Environment

      • Coherency

      • Budget

      • Communication


    Slide33 l.jpg

    • Conclusions:

      • The European projects are not simply “money that falls from the sky”.

      • The real values are knowledge and promotion of the excellence.

      • Don´t be afraid! Join your partners and play in first division

      • Be the best! Europe helps you to be excellent.

    • IMPLEMENTATION OF BEST TECHNOLOGIES FOR WATER EFFICIENCY IN BUILDINGS

    • Objective:

    • Implementation of public policies to promote the water efficiency in buildings. These technologies would include the reuse of rainwater and air condition water to human use (non drink water) keeping it in small tanks in the building or big tanks integrated in public spaces.

    • Possible uses of recycled water:

      • -WC

      • -Irrigation (private or public garden)

      • -Street washing

    PROJECT IDEAS


    Slide68 l.jpg

    • BACTERIA- AND GERM-FREE TREATMENT OF URBAN SEWAGE, WITHOUT THE EMISSION OF CO2 OR METHANE, WITH THE ELIMINATING HEAVY METALS

    • The treatment of urban sewage has two main priorities:

      • To prevent heavy metals pollution of groundwater and stop environmental pollution by emissions of CO2 and methane.

      • Avoiding the noxious odours produced by conventional treatment plants, and secondly, to recycle and subsequently use the water for agriculture, which has as a priority for water consumption.

    PROJECT IDEAS


    Slide69 l.jpg

    • TREATMENT SYSTEMS OF COLD WATER IN CONTAINERS FOR IRRIGATION OF GARDENS

  • The proposal aims to solve the problem of treatment and disposal of wastewater not only by introducing any contaminant discharge to the environment but also by giving a new efficient use of treatwater avoiding damage to the environment and the usage of more water then necessary

  • The STP model is the most advanced formula for purifying domestic wastewater from small towns or business areas (hotels, shopping malls, airports) converting it into suitable water for irrigation gardens or landscapes areas, sport facilities, also for washing and cleaning and its reuse in the toilets

  • PROJECT IDEAS


    Slide70 l.jpg

    RECYCLED WATER GENERATOR MODULE

    • The treatment of urban sewage and domestic waters with biological origin.

    • Use at urban scale: irrigation for parks, gardens, sport and leisure facilities, other urban uses.

    • Treatment in a same and unique MODULE : firstly based on water treatment through “air” exposition and secondly decantation process, where finally water is disinfected.

    INUNDA – FLOOD PREVENTION 2

    • The Valencian Regional Government participated in the project Interreg III B Sudoe “Inunda”.

    • “Inunda” provided authorities with criteria and alternatives for action to minimise human and material losses caused by floods in heavily built-up basins.

    • The 2nd phase proposal would include:

      • Legislative issues

      • Information and remediation actions

      • Insurance policy and insurance Law
