Funded by the EU's funding instrument for the environment and climate action, the REAL Alternatives for LIFE consortium met in June for the project kick-off meeting.
The REAL Alternatives for LIFE project, an extension of the previous Real Alternatives project, is funded by the EU's funding instrument for the environment and climate action, the LIFE programme.
As part of this funding programme, the European Commission is co-financing a consortium of European training centres, associations to provide “train the trainer” sessions on low GWP refrigerants (hydrocarbons, CO2, ammonia, HFOs, R32) in order to ensure safe, efficient, reliable and cost-effective implementation.
Launched in mid-June 2017, the UK Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) hosted the consortium kick-off meeting on June 20-21, 2017 in Carshalton (UK). The partners took the opportunity to discuss in depth the actions to be carried out over the three-year project in order to successfully achieve the deliverables as agreed with the EU funding body, and how to effectively collaborate with the different stakeholders involved in the project.
