A unique energy efficient building is under construction in Zagreb. It will serve as a hub for entrepreneurial learning for countries of Southeastern Europe, and civil engineering students are already at the site, improving their skills. The Home of Entrepreneurial Learning uses renewable energy sources: groundwater of 12 to 15 degrees Celsius provides heating and cooling, while solar panels are paired with six small wind turbines, N1 television reported. The investment is worth over EUR 30 million.

The future seat of the South East European Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (Seecel) is the only social infrastructure project for the region of Southeastern Europe. Its director Efka Heder told Balkan Green Energy News it was directly funded through Western Balkans Investment Framework – WBIF. The facility supported the production of technical documentation as well as the construction work supervision, while the whole project is financed from European Union funds with 85% and the remainder is provided by Croatia, she explained.

Seecel was founded in 2009 on the initiative of EU’s eight pre-accession countries with the aim to develop competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises, defined by the Small Business Act for Europe.

The new building has a total of 14,500 square metres on a plot of 13,000 square metres. It should be complete in the summer.
