StartUp Europe Awards presented at Best Practices on energy projects energy day held in Partenalia

The general director of Foundation Finnova, Juanma Revuelta, the leader organiser of StartUp Europe Awards, presented this initiative promoted by the European Commission and implemented with the support of StartUp Europe during Energy day, an event that witnessed the exchange of Best Practices on Energy Projects held in Partenalia’s premises.

This action, which is currently in phase of development, aims at rewarding the startups across Europe and also gathering all the startups awards organisers held in Europe under the umbrella of the StartUp Europe Awards Alliance. This Alliance already counts on members such as Zincshower or Bank of Ireland StartUps Awards.



The energy day organised by Partenalia aimed at discussing the best practices for energy projects in the Horizon 2020. In the session, several project officers and project coordinators explained how to manage efficiently projects on energy.
