The second meeting of the group on interaction and cooperation of the Cool4City, Cata3Pult, BBC1, LALAPETE and CroBoDDIT projects was held

On April 15, the second meeting of the interaction and cooperation group of five projects was held: Cool4City, Cata3Pult, BBC1, LALAPETE and CroBoDDIT of the cross-border cooperation program of South-Eastern Finland and Russia.

The idea to hold a joint meeting on five projects arose because the focus of these projects is waste management and the transition to a closed-loop economy. In this way, there is a natural and effective communication between projects.

During the second meeting, a discussion of upcoming events and publications was held:
