H2020 euPOLIS (Europe)
Biopolus is involved in the development of a new nature-based urban planning methodology
The €10 million EU-funded euPOLIS project aims to create urban ecosystems and living spaces that improve public health and human well-being. The development is based on the integration of natural values and urban built systems. The project’s innovative urban planning solutions will be tested in four cities: Belgrade, Lodz, Piraeus and Gladsaxe.
Biopolus is building a pilot-sized urban metabolic center, a mini-BioMakery, at the demonstration site in Belgrade. The multifunctional wastewater treatment plant is a sustainable, nature-based circular urban solution that can provide a lovable space for residents in addition to performing technological tasks. The BioMakery will also function as an educational center where visitors can learn about sustainable water management and the impact of environmental elements on people.
euPOLIS has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program H2020-EU.3.5.2., under grant agreement No 869448.
