Beside capacity building trainings for public authorities, FosterREG works on the alignment of interests, strengthening of relations and knowledge exchange with the existing networks relevant to energy efficiency in urban regeneration. Example of FosterREG networking activities is the collaboration with other H2020 projects clusters, namely URBAN LEARNING and BUILD UPON.

Contacts with these two mentioned projects’ representatives were made by the FosterREG national cluster in Croatia during the training activities. Both projects work on similar goals, addressing energy efficiency issues in urban regeneration.

On 8th March 2017 the FosterREG partners TNO and the Municipality of Utrecht became partners of the Green Deal Gasfree districts. The Minister of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands, thirty municipalities, five distributed system operators, twelve provinces and other partners signed in Utrecht a Greendeal in order to heat homes in a different way than with natural gas. This Green Deal fits into the ambition of a low CO2 Dutch society in 2050.  Each of the municipalities have set-up initiatives to make existing neighborhoods gas free, in consultation with residents and other local partners. 

FosterREG team continues the capacity building activities - the last training took place on 3rd March in Osijek (Croatia).

Participants were informed about the state of the art of urban regeneration financing in Croatia, issues  that are identified in FosterREG projects as well as the new opportunities and the way forward to  improve the financing and implementation of the EE in UR projects. Stakeholders collaboratively  formed models for application of different types of buildings in the project on the city district level.


FosterREG project has been presented by Agnieszka Kowalska (ASM-Market Research and Analysis Centre) at Information Day on Environment and Energy areas in Horizon 2020 that was held in Warsaw, Poland on 31st January 2017.

FosterREG was presented during a session dedicated to implemented projects and success cases in Horizon 2020. 

Project's final events: webinar and conference were disseminated to the gathered audience (research institutions and companies operating in the energy and environmental area, involved or interested in participating in H2020 projects).
