MORE ABOUT US

The STRATECO team gained comprehensive know-how for the implementation of consulting and planning processes with individual enterprises, municipalities, cities, research institutions as well as private persons in the field of sustainable development through the study of environmental system sciences at University of Graz and the joint employment of several years at the Graz University of Technology at the Institute of Process and Particle Engineering in the working group Process Synthesis, Process Evaluation and Regional Development under the guidance of Prof. Michael Narodoslawsky.

A large number of implemented projects, with numerous research and industry partner and other customers, led to an intensive deepening of sustainability assessment and optimization. This work was and is connected with a high personal motivation for the thematic contents. After the fulfilling research activity at University of Graz and Graz University of Technology, we set the initial spark in 2016 to build a joint company. The space for creativity is particularly motivating to move even more intensive in the direction of practical implementation projects!

JPI Urban Europe: Making Cities Work; Project Title: SYNCITY - Synergetic Cities for Europe

Joint Programming a process of the European Commission, which was established in 2008 with the aim to strengthen the cooperation in the field of research and innovation of the European countries by using national resources in a coordinated way. The Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe was founded in 2010 to expand cooperation in the field of urban research and development in order to create attractive, sustainable and economically strong cities.

SYNCITY - Synergetic Cities for Europe:
The city of tomorrow needs sustainable participatory processes involving all relevant stakeholders, pushing innovation competence and operating in a paradigm of sustainability. This is the starting point for the SYNCITY project.
How can processes and structures be established between the relevant stakeholders that enable synergies, creative sustainable solutions and positive changes for living together in an urban community? This question becomes all the more important when faced with conflicting interests and uncertainties typical of urban development processes.
In line with SDG 11 "Sustainable Cities and Towns", SYNCITY shows how urban transformation projects, especially in disadvantaged areas with very diverse communities, can achieve a high level of acceptance among residents and positive effects on urban society as such, the local economy and the whole life in the city.
Often, urban transformation plans with a potential for positive change lack a comprehensive and coordinated integration of stakeholders. The SYNCITY case study in the neighbourhood of Cureghem in the center of Brussels, Belgium, leads to a methodology for urban transformation processes, which leads to three feasible proposals for future larger scale urban transformation projects in Crureghem and a toolbox for European municipalities to better implement integrative urban transformation processes in the future.

TRAIN-CE-FOOD

Jungunternehmertum wird als ein wichtiger Faktor zur Senkung von Jugendarbeitslosigkeit angesehen. Dieses Projekt möchte zur Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen im Bereich der Kreislaufwirtschaft entlang der Lebensmittelkette und soziales Unternehmertum beitragen.

Das Projekt wird von acht Partner aus sechs EU-Ländern getragen, wobei drei davon mit hoher Jugendarbeitslosigkeit konfrontiert sind. Eingebunden sind dabei zahlreiche Fachleute aus den Bereichen Kreislaufwirtschaft entlang der Lebensmittelkette, soziales Unternehmertum und Wissensvermittlung.

Das Ziel von TRAIN-CE-FOOD besteht konkret darin, innovative Fachkompetenzen zu entwickeln und damit junge Menschen zu befähigen, unternehmerische und kooperative Fähigkeiten und Denkweisen zu nutzen. Diese sollen sie in die Lage versetzen, effiziente kooperative Lösungen und Geschäftsmodelle im Bereich der Kreislaufwirtschaft entlang der Lebensmittelkette zu entwickeln. Dies soll durch offenes Online-Lernen, Face-to-Face-Workshops und Fern-Coaching gelingen. Zielgruppen sind SchülerInnen und Studierende, ebenso wie LehrerInnen und ProfessorInnen ab der Mittelschulstufe.

TRAIN-CE-FOOD produziert unter anderem einen Lehrplan auf Mittelschulniveau und einen auf Universitätsniveau, e-learning Module ebenso wie ein e-Textbuch und bietet Intensivkurse, Coachings zur Gründung von Unternehmen und einen zentralen Workshop für alle Ziel- und Interessensgruppen dieses Projekts.

Das Projekt wird von der Europäischen Kommission, Generaldirektion für Binnenmarkt, Industrie, Unternehmertum und KMU, ko-finanziert.

TOWARDS A NEW ZERO FOOD WASTE MINDSET BASED ON HOLISTIC ASSESSMENT

Food waste is a major problem: around 88 million tonnes of food is wasted annually along the EU supply chain, from primary production to consumption, with associated costs of €143 billion. The associated environmental impact is also huge: global food loss and waste is equivalent to 8-10% of total anthropogenic GHG emissions and costs around $1 trillion per year, and 30% of agricultural land is wasted. The situation may be even worse, as statistics indicate that 70% of all food lost or wasted by humans may be unrecorded because it originates from primary production or is used as animal feed. In parallel, the assessment of this problem remains unresolved, not only because it is extremely complex due to the lack of open access data and the absence of a standard methodology for comprehensive assessment in real food systems, but also because it affects the commitment of private entities that need to assess the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of food waste prevention and reduction (FWPR) solutions in order to act. ToNoWaste is a 48-month project in which 21 institutions from 7 countries collaborate to overcome this challenge with a multi-stakeholder and interdisciplinary approach that considers not only agronomic, economic, environmental and business model challenges, but also other cross-cutting aspects such as psychology, law and social innovation to fight also against gender and social inequalities. ToNoWaste will inspire market actors to use science and evidence-based assessment tools and data to make better decisions towards more sustainable food production and consumption patterns. It starts from research on what makes the best decision regarding FWPR actions in the fresh food value chain. It is an open innovation ecosystem designed to leverage previous findings for the identification of social, technical/environmental, economic, political/legal, ethical and demographic drivers and to collaborate with ongoing R&D actions to propose comprehensive FWPR solutions.
