    The Sustainable Construction Programme, in Andalusia, Spain, seeks through energy saving and renewable energy to promote the energy refurbishment of buildings, rehabilitate urban areas, improve the competitiveness of companies of the construction sector, create skilled employment and reduce energy poverty.
    The Programme consists of three main actions:

    1. An incentive scheme of 116 million EUR and 48 possible actions to facilitate the energy refurbishment of existing buildings.
    2. Implementation of a financing line, specifically through revolving funds for companies.
    3. Creation of the “Sustainable Construction Roundtable” involving more than 70 experts from different disciplines.

    Quantitatively, the outputs that have resulted from the incentive scheme include 24.562 actions (60.000 citizens, 600 neighbourhood communities and 2.500 companies), 170 million euros invested, and 7.663 collaborating companies. 80.000 new jobs are expected to be generated in the next 5 years.

    The project has also achieved 26.000 toe/year of energy saved and/or diversified and 62.000 tons of CO2 avoided, created 14.000 direct jobs in the implementation and management of the actions, resulted in economic saving of more than 210 million euros in companies, citizens, neighbourhood communities and other entities.

  • Regiostars 2015 - Scandinavian Game Developers

    Video title

    13/10/2015

    The overall aim of Scandinavian Game Developers has been to ensure
    that entrepreneurs in the Scandinavian gaming industry can establish
    viable companies and survive in a highly competitive business
    environment.

    When the project started, the gaming industry needed new business
    models. The project’s Swedish partner, the University of Skövde,
    designed a business model for entertainment and educational games – and
    business coaches, who counselled the young startups in the 2 project
    incubators, ensured the mainstreaming of the new model.

    The project established 22 new small companies which now employ 67
    persons, and just recently one of these companies attracted an external
    investment of around € 270.000 (or 2 million DKK). All the new companies
    have stated that the incubators have been vital to the survival of
    their companies, and that they will continue to develop their companies
    in the incubators which they see as very dynamic and inspiring
    environments.

    Apart from the business models and trainings, the project has
    produced and disseminated a number of magazines on how to create and run
    companies in the games industry and has created a database on
    Scandinavian competences within the gaming industry which resulted in 78
    cross border meetings, conferences, and workshops with a total of 1793
    participants.

  • Regiostars 2015 - Eurocity of Chaves-Verín

    Video title

    13/10/2015

    The Eurocity of Chaves-Verín is a cross-border conurbation located on the border between North Portugal and the Autonomous Spanish Community of Galicia, formed by the cities of Chaves (42 000 inhabitants) and Verín (15 000 inhabitants).

    The key objectives were to provide Eurocity with a structure that ensures efficient cooperation, involve citizens to encourage coexistence, create euro citizenship, boost the economy and sustainable development of the territory.

    Both cities worked together on a wide range of projects, such as offering of joint services and joint municipality facilities, a cross-border office for youth, joint cultural events, commerce, sports, leisure, tourism and promotion of entrepreneurship.

    In total, 3,500 people participated in youth exchanges and 40,000 people in sports, extracurricular and cultural events. About 50 cross-border micro-initiatives were supported. The success of the project has inspired the establishment of new Eurocities along the Portuguese-Spanish border.

    The project has demonstrated that institutional, economic, social, cultural and environmental integration of two cities is possible across borders.

    13/10/2015

    The key objective of the project is to promote social inclusion and growth, reduction of school dropout rates and ensuring higher employability. It consisted of several types of interventions, not only strengthening learning processes, but also addressing economic, psychological, cultural and social disadvantages that contribute to early school leaving.

    The project provided counselling, educational and vocational guidance and intercultural mediation, benefiting both students and their families, through a cultural mediator, psychological counselor and a help- desk. These tools aim to compensate learning deficiencies and create more inclusive school environments, responding also to the needs of disadvantaged and disabled students.

    The project has recorded significant improvements. For example, the percentage of 15 year old students with limited reading capacities was reduced to 16.7% in 2012. At the same time, the dropout rate decreased from 30.3% in 2003 to 19.9% in 2013.

    The project also stimulated students’ motivation, which is the basis for strengthening basic skills and for changing their attitude towards school attendance in general. In total, over 50,000 students (about 30% of the population of the schools involved) and 10,000 families benefited from the help-desk aimed at improving access to employment and vocational training.

    Chaque année, L'UE investit des millions d'euros dans la croissance et la création d'emplois, afin de réduire les écarts socio-économiques entre ses régions. Cette courte vidéo montre comment ces investissements améliorent le quotidien des Européens.

    Ces cinq dernières années, cette politique a créé plus de 600 000 emplois; a aidé jusqu'à 15 millions de personnes par an à se former professionnellement; a cofinancé la construction de 25 000 km de routes et de 1 800 km de voies ferrées; a assuré l’approvisionnement en eau potable de 3 millions de personnes supplémentaires; et a investi dans 200 000 PME et 61 000 projets de recherche. Ces chiffres continuent d’augmenter, puisque les projets initiés ces cinq dernières années continuent de produire des résultats.

    Toutes ces réalisations ont été possibles grâce au Fonds européen de développement régional, au Fonds de cohésion et au Fonds social européen, qui représentent ensemble plus d’un tiers du budget de l’UE
