On Tuesday 06.07.2021, Fachhochschule Vorarlberg gave a keynote address at the final conference of the MELINDA project, organized in the scope of the Alpine Space Interreg program.

FHV opened the conference by raising awareness on circular economy potentials in enabling a low-carbon economy, its role in facilitating RES in mobility, and discussing policy frameworks that drive renewables in transport.

The final conference of the MELINDA project was organised with the goal to present project results and deliver lessons learned in the process of transition towards a more resilient and thriving low carbon economy. In the scope of the policy instrument for stimulating a low-carbon economy in the Alpine Space region, FHV introduced the RES setting in Vorarlberg and subsequently presented the best practices identified in the national context.

In addition, FHV led the further discourse on policies supporting renewable electricity as a transport fuel, policies assisting future renewable transport and mobility, and policies promoting renewables in sharing economy - in an international setting. Conference participants encompassed a broad range of European government, industry and academia representatives, debating on the main topic of the event "Mobility Ecosystem for Low-carbon and INnovative Modal shift in the Alp", and its sub-fields encompassing state-of-the-art solutions within the field.
