The INTENSSS PA project was launched in February 2016. All project partners, involving 17 partners from 7 EU countries were gathered at the kick off meeting in Brussels on 25th February 2016, and met again in Greece early July 2016 for the second project meeting.
A network of seven Regional Living Labs (RLL) from the seven different Countries/Regions that participate in the consortium is now under creation: Latvia, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, Slovenia, Italy and Greece.
INTENSSS PA aims at supporting public authorities to integrate the energy theme into spatial planning and regional physical and socioeconomic landscapes.
To achieve this objective INTENSS-PA will provide human and institutional capacity building to public authorities and private and public actors related to energy and regional planning by implementing the Living Lab concept. This shall ensure an active stakeholder involvement by empowering them to thoroughly impact the design and implementation of an integrated energy planning concept, and which is to be tested under real life settings. The overall approach will involve learning sessions and experiential projects alongside intense networking.
Based on the planning concept to be developed each of the 7 regions will develop a regional sustainable energy plan.
