The VIOLET project has explored the issue of renovating historic and heritage buildings for energy efficiency, identifying good practices from across Europe for enhancing energy efficiency in heritage buildings, and developing action plans for its partner regions, to improve regional policies and European Regional Development Fund policy...

Earlier this year, EIfI-Tech published the openly available report, titled ‘’Policy Recommendations to Promote the Inclusion of Standards for Heritage Buildings in EU Regulations’’, within the Interreg Europe VIOLET project.

On the 21st and 22nd of May the third transnational meeting of the EMIC-GEM project was supposed to be held in Bilbao, hosted by CIFP Construcción Bizkaia. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, partners have been unable to meet personally, pivoting to the best of their abilities through monthly partner video calls and interactive transnational online workshops. On the 4th of June, our most recent online meeting, the EMIC-GEM Erasmus+ consortium activities at the meeting included some of the actions that would have been part of our transnational meeting in Spain. The meeting consisted of general project updates from the lead partner, followed by an update on the report by Višja Strokovna šola Academia (Slovenia) on the training model and competency framework. An update on module descriptors was then provided by the lead partner, the City of Glasgow College. The virtual meeting concluded with further updates on the website development from our Austrian partners at LBS Pinkafeld and general project communication points. Our next Transnational Meeting is planned for November 2020 in Bieberach, Germany at the Holzbau Baden-Württemberg Bildungszentrum. We hope that this allows enough time for restrictions to be lifted and for face to face meetings to be allowed again. While online meetings are good for keeping up the productivity of the project they can’t replace many of the important aspects of Erasmus projects like getting impressions from other countries, experiencing their schools and work places or getting to know the project team over a shared meal. We hope to find a date later on in the project to reschedule the transnational meeting at our partners in Bilbao. The EMIC-GEM consortium convenes monthly to follow up on particular actions highlighted in the transnational meetings and workshops in order to ensure project success.
