The basic idea of the project is to determine the good practices and to design the best policy, which successfully tackle the problem of waste prevention and management for the benefit of regional/local communities not only of the participating but all the EU countries. Many regional/local authorities, with weak knowledge endowments, are confronted with the challenge of supporting the Green concept in environment. However, the ability of local authorities to facilitate or underpin the necessary knowledge transfer from universities with the help of national/regional agencies definitely assists the implementation of ETAP at the participating regions. So, providing the aforementioned background, the main project objective is to enhance the interaction between universities and local authorities, with the aim of facilitating knowledge exchange that can lead not only to increased environmental consciousness but also to the adoption of actions and mechanisms through a solid action plan.
