Building blocks: BarriersIndustrial Symbiosis – Innovation Academy 


The Social Acceptance cluster of ISPT provides solutions to industry and researchers how to work on non-technological innovation challenges. The ultimate goal of the cluster is to promote the use of energy-efficient technology both inside and the plant and with other external parties, with a special focus on how to share energy streams in the region.

The Social Acceptance cluster combines fundamental and applied research. In this way we create a chain of research, application and validation within a broad network. The network enables an active dissemination towards both professionals and students. Projects are funded byt the MVI program of the Topsector Energy.
