The next stop of the HOOP Study Visit is Kuopio (Finland)!

Vicente Serra

The HOOP project is organising its fourth Study Visit on 16 June, visiting the Lighthouse city Kuopio to learn more about its management of biowaste.

The study visit aims to 1) inspire innovative solutions that HOOP Network members can adapt and implement in their own territories and 2) to provide opportunities for HOOP Network Members to meet HOOP Lighthouses and Technical Partners and receive feedbacks or exchange lessons learnt. Find all the information and the agenda here.

For the members of the HOOP Network, all the travel costs (hotel, flight/train tickets, subsistence) are covered by the project. The Study Visit is open only to members of the HOOP Network of Cities and Regions. If you are a city, a region or a waste management/waste water treatment company, register to the Network in order to join the 4th HOOP Study Visit and get access to all the HOOP services.

The HOOP Network of Cities and Regions helps territories improve the valorisation of biowaste and wastewater by facilitating knowledge exchange and mutual learning. The Network is open to organisations that plan, organise, or operate municipal waste management or wastewater treatment, for instance local or regional authorities, or waste management companies.

The Network is a free service and the time and effort invested by the members depend on the interests and needs of the cities and regions. Furthermore, HOOP can cover the travel expenses of members of the Network to participate in activities, such as conferences, workshops, meetings on valorisation of biowaste and study visits.
