The INNOVEAS Kick-Off Meeting (KoM) was held in Bologna on 2 and 3 July 2019, with the participation of all the partners. The meeting, chaired by the INNOVEAS Project coordinator Luisa Sileni (IIPLE), was mainly focused on the presentation of the project features, the work plan and the Work Packages. During the meeting, K&I presented the first results of the literature review on the barriers that SMEs encounter in planning and carrying out actions aimed at improving energy efficiency (including the implementation of Energy Audits). The other partners described how the Energy Audits will take place (focusing on SMEs) in the various countries represented in the Consortium (Belgium, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Slovenia, Spain). Andrea Declich and Gabriele Quinti attended the meeting on behalf of K&I.
