On the 15th and 16th July 2014, EFENIS and LOCIMAP, the projects within the 7th Framework Programme, came together at a joint event which was held at the Bayer facilities in Leverkusen on the Chempark complex.
The two projects informed each other as well as wider industrial and academic communities about their activities and put their heads together in facing the challenges and issues of the energy intensive sectors and future industrial parks.
