Then, two different courses will be organised as class lessons and will be left open for the participation to all industrial sectors.

MAESTRI International Conference

International conference in the end of the project (1 day event), about energy and resource management in process industries, and covering the main research areas of this project (eco-efficiency, industrial symbiosis, management system, motivation strategies, IoT). The international will be organised in Portugal.

MAESTRI workshops

At least 10 workshops will be organized by project partners (2 per each MAESTRI’s countries) in their countries to industrial associations. The scope of the workshops will be to inform targeted stakeholders, who are expected to support the replication of the project’s results, of the achievements and opportunities that might derive from the application of the developments of MAESTRI.
