On 19.-20.11.2015, the Kick-Off Meeting of the new FNR project RE-SAVE took place in the Italian region of Umbria
Renewable Energy Sources for Agricultural Vocational Education is the name of the new Erasmus+ project RE-SAVE which was funded in September 2015. The project has the duration of two years and aims at matching the training needs of European farmers who wish to integrate the use of renewable energy sources and to substitute energy from fossil fuels.
It deals with cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices between Turkey, Slovakia, Greece, Italy, Poland and Germany. Ardahan University from Turkey is the project coordinator.
Experiences gained by the partners in their countries will be applied by adapting available teaching materials on techniques and technologies for managing renewable energy plants. The final training outcomes of the RE-SAVE project will focus on a strategy to develop local energy networks and planning tools for the use of renewable sources in connection with sustainable rural development plans. Target groups are: farmers, livestock breeders and agritourism and agro-forestry farms; agronomists and agricultural advisory services; students of agriculture, engineering, biology, chemistry and technicians of assistance services for re-use of farm animal waste and crops residues; policy makers; as well as green economy stakeholders.
The task of FNR is to map the state-of-the-art in the RE sector in Germany as well as giving a relevant synthesis of the German practical experience for the know-how transfer purposes within the project consortium.
The Kick-Off Meeting of the project took place in Perugia on 19.-20.11.2015 and was organised by the project partner, Confederazione italiana agrociltori dell’Umbria. During the Kick-Off Meeting, the project partners had the possibility to introduce their home institutions and to discuss in detail the project plan as well as respective responsibilities.

Furthermore, the project consortium has agreed on the presentation of the first project deliverables within the second project meeting that will be organised by the FNR in May 2016 in Gülzow-Prüzen, Germany.
The FNR is glad to have become member of the strong and experienced RE-SAVE team and wishes the project a good and successful journey!
