RENOVABLES is focused on the fields of education and the environment as linchpins, with an emphasis on bringing the Euroregion’s citizens onboard. It prioritises improving mutual knowledge and communication between companies and research institutions of its three territories, in order to foster competitiveness and the opening up of new markets. Importance is given to quality university education by means of cooperation between universities and R&D&i stakeholders. Crossborder mobility is encouraged by supporting offshore renewable energies, as one of the six key sectors.
Furthermore, the social and economic cohesion of its crossborder area is strengthened by means of strategic cooperation between different business and technological stakeholders. This represents the cornerstone of the Euroregion’s strategic plan. A Euroregional value chain that is greatly needed in this sector is thus created and is structured by the intense partnerships with EUSKAMPUS and which leads to close cooperation between its Chambers of Commerce, thematic networks and clusters. It is related to the social and economic development of humanity, as one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the UN for 2030. Directly, SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy) and SDG 13 (climate action) require measures to be adopted to combat climate change.
