Last 29th of January, the TOP-REF partner CIRCE hosted at his offices in Brussels the kick off meeting of the STYLE project – Sustainability toolkit for easy life-cycle evaluation-. The project is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) funded by the European Commission, and is part of the projects developed in the framework of the European industrial association SPIRE.
The STYLE project ultimately seeks to identify and deliver a practical ‘toolkit’ that can be used by future EU projects and industry to assess the value (in sustainability terms) of new technologies and process modifications that seek to make resource and energy efficiency improvements.
Although no TOP-REF partner is involved in STYLE, both projects address a common scope to develop innovative tools improving the resources performance of EU industry across multiple sectors. During the meetings held in Brussels, a short brief of the project TOP-Ref was provided with the presence of the Project Officer of both projects Mr. Sooren Bodwat. In this sense, the cooperation between STYLE and Top-REF arises as an excellent opportunity to pave the way for a wider multisectorial application of TOP-Ref results.
