The eighth EFFESUS project meeting took place from 03-04 February 2016 in Genoa, Italy.

It was hosted and organized by D´Appolonia. Around 35 representatives of the 23 project partners discussed the progress of the last five months.

The main topics were the development of business models for the EFFESUS innovations, the validation of the Decision Support System and the discussion on upcoming major dissemination events such as the final conference, participation in fairs and stakeholder workshops.

A voluntary excursion to Via Garibaldi (the EFFESUS case study) and other parts of the historic city center of Genoa completed the program.
