After speaking to partners during her site visit in October, UIA Expert Jorgina Cuixart tells us how “APPLAUSE has gone through its first year of implementation, reaching a number of achievements:
• Setting up a streamlined coordination structure that is clear and practical for all partners (researchers, NGOs, businesses and public authorities learning to work together).
• Delivering a first campaign of Invasive Alien Plant Species (IAPS) harvesting and pre-processing (recovering IAPS and transforming it into resource).
• Implementing the first tests for multiple uses for IAPS (using IAPS as raw material for furniture, paper products, biochemical compounds…)“.
