The focus of the roundtables should include existing private and public buildings, industry and SME’s. The forums will gather and upscale existing best practices from the national and European level, develop strategies, and action plans, propose improvements in the national policy frameworks and measures, and follow their implementation, develop jointly template documents and contracts leading to a better functioning of the market. The roundtables will act as a forum where all stakeholders can learn from successful market initiatives, and can provide input into the policy making process.
