Technical Facilitation - Case Studies

Britest coordinating collaborations

Participation in strategic initiatives such as the EU H2020:SPIRE Public-Private-Partnership opens up powerful influencing routes and further opportunities, but it takes excellent project management skills to pull the complex elements of a collaborative project together into a coherent whole. This case study describes how Britest brought together a consortium of ten partners to successfully bid for and deliver a two-year project collating views from EU process industry sectors, public sector, academics and sustainability experts to positively influence future approaches to sustainability evaluation across the EU.
