Our partners in the Green Economy

Vision & Mission


The European Green Deal is a set of policy initiatives by the European Commission with the overarching aim of making Europe climate neutral in 2050. The European Green Deal is a roadmap for making the EU’s economy sustainable. This will happen by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities across all policy areas and making the transition just and inclusive for all.

The TREC network addresses and jointly implements the goal of the Green Deal: climate neutral in 2050.

The EU will also provide financial support and technical assistance to help people, businesses and regions that are most affected by the move towards the green economy. This is called the Just Transition Mechanism and will help mobilise at least €100 billion over the period 2021 – 2027 in the most affected regions.


TREC is an established and powerful network to provide powerful solutions and answers, the European Green Deal calls for: Connecting Green Economy Clusters and networks allover Central and South East Europe with common goals and visions for the future:

  • Initialise innovative projects with European impact (Horizon Europe)
  • Uniting and focusing expertise in the Green Economy
  • Enabling cooperations between industry and R&D

  • Development of long term partnerships for technology & knowledge transfer
