14 June 2024 - E6  project
Core ERNACT member Nièvre Numérique and Nevers Agglomeration organised their E6 project local meeting on the 11th June in Nevers (France). The aim of this day was to gather all the local stakeholders of the project to work about their needs and ideas to build a perenne ecosystem for reuse of EEE, especially for IT equipments.

The event began with a collective session of presentations of the E6 project and the Nevers Ecosystem. Rianne Driessen and Frank Stiksma from Saxion University of Applied Sciences were present to speak about the reason to be of E6 as founding members and lead partners of the E6 project.

During the morning around 30 participants, representating local authorities, associations, companies but also design and IT schools were divided in 4 groups to share their ideas on different topics such as IT refurbishment, use of free software for extended lifetime of IT, environmental, societal and economical values within the project and their needs for the future service hub that will be developped with E6.

A need was expressed for communication, awareness and also special training in repairing and using refurbished EEE for the citizens and for local companies and public authorities.

The particiants expressed their needs in the E6 service hub especially to improve different customer journeys and offers for citizens, local authorities and local companies.

During the afternoon the whole group visited ANAR, a local association working for social inclusion that opened recently its new IT refurbishing service. Later the group visited the company Regain Ecoplast, working since 35 years in recycling television screens. The participants were very impressed about the treatment process.

The group will be now animated through a collaborative online platform to work on the ecosystem and the next meeting will take place on 3rd July and will be about the business model of the Nevers ecosystem.
