The ERF cordially invites you to the conference “Promoting Sustainable Infrastructure in EU Regions” to be held 3rd March 2015 (Tuesday) at the Committee of the Regions in Brussels.

This conference is organised within the framework of the New Jersey Project co-financed by the European Union LIFE Programme which is the main financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects throughout the EU. In this sense, the consortium coordinated by the Region of Madrid has developed a new solution for the reutilisation of end of life tyres and other plastics.

In addition to the New Jersey Project, other EU initiatives on road infrastructure aiming at improving environment and quality of life for regions and cities will be presented during the event (i.e. sustainable pavements, recycling of materials, electric mobility). The event will conclude with the presentation of the New Public Procurement Directive which must be implemented by regions next year and hence encouraging the road infrastructure industry to promote more innovative and sustainable solutions.

Should you require further information about the event, please contact Mr. Jose Diez.
