Ivet Ferrer, Fabiana Passos and Sandra Correa from UPC attended the 17th SET Plan Conference (https://setplanevent.presidencyeu.es/) as UPC representatives. The focus for this year’s edition was Energy Research and Innovation for a competitive Europe, and the researchers had the opportunity to showcase ongoing projects in the field of circular economy, such as 4BIOLIVE. It was a great chance to reach a broad audience which included not only researchers but also policymakers.
