The aim of the project is to:

Increase awareness, share expertise and knowledge and transfer good energy practices about energy solutions between the three involved projects and partner regions.

Specific objectives are to:
  • Increase awareness of ongoing Arctic Cooperation projects' results through online communication tools, webinars and the involvement of a wider group of stakeholders achieving wider target audiences, including policy makers.
  • Bigger dissemination of good energy practices identified across the three involved projects optimising the use of resources.

Arctic Cluster is a new interregional project that involves three projects (SECURE, EEBAK and GrAB) and 15 partner regions from Europe, Canada and Russian Federation that are addressing similar themes and territorial challenges on energy efficiency and renewable solutions for buildings. The main objective is to use transnational cooperation to ensure better implementation of the energy solutions available to maximise more efficient added value of the funding received.

The project aims to increase awareness and transfer good energy practices. To achieve this objective, the three involved projects, that are co-funded by three different Arctic Cooperation programmes, will share expertise and knowledge under the new Arctic Cooperation cross-programme.

The duration of the project will be of 12 months and the three involved projects will optimise networking, co-ordination, monitoring, exchange of information, and the exploitation and dissemination of results. Partners will not only ensure more digital resources for a bigger outreach, but also the involvement of a wider group of stakeholders to achieve wider target audiences, including policy makers. 

The final result of the project will be the creation and submission of a new project proposal under Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020 to continue working towards a low carbon economy.
