21st European Forum on Eco-innovation

05-06 February 2018, Sofia,Bulgaria

21st European Forum on Eco-innovation

The European Commission’s Directorate General for the Environment, and the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Water will hold the 21st European Forum on Eco-innovation on 5-6 February 2018. The forum brings together companies and public authorities to examine eco-innovative solutions for improving air quality.

Air pollution has come down across Europe over the past decade, but still costs the region nearly 400 000 lives and over €20 billion each year. The European Commission is committed to reduce air pollution to levels that no longer threaten human health and the environment. This objective requires support from across both society and the economy.

At the 21st European Forum on Eco-innovation, innovators will present technologies, business models and governance plans to raise air quality to new standards. The two-day programme includes conference presentations on the impact of energy, transport and agriculture on air-quality. Time is set aside for discussions in smaller groups, a cocktail reception and a visit to the UNESCO-listed Boyana Church in the outskirts of Sofia.

The event languages are English and Bulgarian. Registration is open online. For further information please visit the forum website, or contact the EcoAP Secretariat on +32 2 340 30 64.
