The Resource Nexus Policy & Cluster Workshop, co-organized by the Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) and the Horizon2020 projects MAGIC, SIM4NEXUS and DAFNE, brought together EU-funded projects related to the resource nexus as well as other (non-EU funded) related initiatives with the objective to stimulate peer-to-peer and science-to-policy discussions on how to get the most out of nexus research for the benefit of society and policy-making.
Workshop topics included nexus governance, nexus policy coherence, resource efficiency, the nexus in transboundary systems, and nexus research and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The workshop counted with the participation of, among others, the Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI) and the SUGI projects CRUNCH, SUNEX, FEW-meter, and Creating Interfaces; Stepping Up, BRIDGE, Next Ag, EU WEF Nexus Regional Dialogues, ITT Nexus FSP, GIZ, IFPRI, Arcadis, and Adelphi. Several EC officers from DG RTD, DG ENV, DG AGRI and DG DEVCO actively participated in the event.
