The aim of the ZERO-HYTECHPARK project, part of the European LIFE+ programme on the environment, is to achieve more sustainable technology parks, a task for which it has a budget of 1.3 million euros, 50% of which is financed by the European Union for four years (from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2013).

The Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon coordinates this initiative with the participation of technology parks in Huesca, Andalusia and Science and Technology Park of Bizkaia, which are project partners. ZERO-HYTECHPARK aims to put measures in place to achieve total sustainability in these areas via optimum energy management by means of systems based on hydrogen technologies and renewable energies.

The Life+ Programme is the only European Union financial instrument exclusively dedicated to the environment for the 2007-2013 period, whose general objective is to contribute to the application, updating and development of European policy and legislation concerning the environment and its integration with other policies.
