Starting in October 2020, the HOOP video series will provide insights into the different aspects of this Horizon 2020 project, taking you on a tour of the urban metabolism concept and the circular economy approach of making bio-based products from the valuable resources that can extracted from urban biowaste and wastewater; you will also journey to the 8 cities and regions around Europe that are participating in leading the way as ‘lighthouse’ for others to emulate and follow in advancing Europe’s bioeconomy at local levels. Join the journey today and share your projects and comments!

HOOP is about investing in local initiatives to extract valuable resources from urban biowaste and wastewater in order to make bio-based products. Advancing Europe’s circular economy agenda, as a main pillar of the European Green Deal, HOOP will provide direct Project Development Assistance (PDA) to municipalities so they can build their administrative, technical, economic, financial and legal expertise. This project will help enhance the return on investments by reusing resources, creating jobs, and developing local bioeconomy capacity. HOOP is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that brings together 23 partners from 10 countries and 8 lighthouse cities and regions from a variety of geographies around Europe, including close to 2.5 million people together from: Kuopio (Finland), Bergen (Norway), Almere (The Netherlands), Albano-Lazio (Italy), Porto (Portugal), Region of Western Macedonia (Greece), Murcia (Spain), and Münster (Germany).
