Smart Urban Reuse Flagship Alliances in Central Europe (SURFACE)

Large volumes of waste & waste water, poor air and water quality, high levels of ambient noise, lack of integrated environmental management are relevant issues in functional urban areas. Reuse is a highly relevant approach to tackle them. Despite recent improvements at transnational level there is still a highly fragmented decision making landscape in this field.

SURFACE’s main objective is to improve environmental management & quality of life of functional urban areas through the establishment of Multi-Stakeholder based Smart Re-Use parks as a possible solution for increasing sustainability in selected functional urban areas. The change consists in the availability of a harmonized & evidence based decision making setting in the field of waste prevention & reuse in CE.

SURFACE involves complementary & synergic partners in different small and medium-sized cities to contribute to the development of local waste prevention & reuse based environmental management strategies and plans. For more info look at project web site.
