On Tuesday 4 November, the province of Flevoland organised a large international conference which was part of a 3-days’ programme that marked the end of the projects SMART EUROPE and GreenInfraNet.

GreenInfraNet connects nature with other fields of policy to preserve and strengthen nature and biodiversity, while SMART EUROPE connects innovation to regional job growth. Both projects started in 2012 and will end in December 2014. Over 160 people from 20 countries participated in the conference, which succeeded in connecting people working in the field of nature, innovation and employment.

In this occasion, also the final video of SMART EUROPE was presented to the public.
