Since 1999, Xerius has established a strong reputation as a trusted company in the defense, aerospace and industrial sectors.
When facing nearly every major conservation problem from human-wildlife conflict to climate change, monitoring biodiversity and the movement of species is essential to our understanding of the ecosystems we’re protecting.
Building on its core radiofrequency engineering background, Xerius decided in 2016 to create a specific department called XeriusTracking related to environment. Its goal is to support scientists, organisations and governments in their effort to monitor and protect biodiversity. For it, we developed miniaturised devices using GPS, Argos, UHF, GSM and Bluetooth technologies.
Our main solution, BioLoc, comprises miniaturised GPS/UHF and Argos devices which can communicate using both Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technology and a direct-to-satellite data link (Argos). It is a private and secure LPWAN network using an european certified frequency band.
The use of geofencing to switch to an Argos satellite network when ground-based UHF communication networks are not within reach offers a hybrid Space-LPWAN solution, combining efficiency with global connectivity. The combination of UHF devices communicating with Argos technology is cutting-edge, mirroring state-of-the-art ‘IoT Sat’ systems which aim to provide Argos and UHF ultra-low power communication anywhere on earth. XeriusTracking has developed super-lightweight BioLoc transmitters which can be collared or back-packed on species.

GZM associates 41 municipalities of central Silesia (26 urban, 2 urban-rural and 13 rural municipalities), including 13 cities on poviat rights. GZM covers the area of ca. 2,500 km2. The industrial profile of the region comprises of conventional industrial branches as well as of intensively developed modern technologies, ca. automotive, IT and medicine. GZM is inhabited by 2.5 mln of people and generates 8% of GBP. The production of municipal wastes in GZM reaches over 1 mln tonnes of waste (more than 52% of wastes produced by the whole Voivodship).
The main organs of Metropolis are: The Assembly and The Management Board. The Assembly is formed by representatives (mayors) of every associate municipality, who are responsible for the elaboration of the GZM development strategy. As mayors are also responsible for actions realized by their municipalities, hence, GZM is focused on solving issues and development of all associated municipalities. Moreover, GZM Management Board is elected by The Assembly, thus GZM is actually managed by its municipalities. Due to its high urbanization rate and central location, GZM has a significant impact also on other regions and municipalities of Silesian Voivodship.

LIFE-ECOWASTE-BIOSILESIA will demonstrate a territorial cross-sector, large-scale and sustainable system solution for a closed-loop biodegradable kitchen waste through the following activities:

1. We will develop a plan for territorial holistic participatory management, i.e. with participation of many entities from the public, private and scientific sectors. We will implement it in Metropolis GZM, duplicate it to other regions in Poland and abroad, and publish recommendations in the form of a Masterplan for further replication in Europe.
2. We will build a value chain for organic recycling, including:
1) we will enable the cooperation (we will network) of all the necessary parties with the help of Hub4Circularity established within the structures of the Metropolitan Office of GZM;
2) we will create, in practice, a new way of collecting biodegradable kitchen waste so that it can be further reused,
3) we will retrofit, by modifying, for the purposes of the project, two organic existing recycling technology installations for processing of municipal mixed waste (in the region covered by the project) into installations for organic recycling of bio-degradable kitchen waste,
4) we will produce a new waste-based product on remodeled installations that meets high environmental requirements for reuse,
5) we will enable the use of the generated product in the economy by replacing artificial fertilizers with it.

Although in the final selection, unfortunately, the evaluators did not understand the significance of the innovative project and its potential. A partner for your project. Associated beneficiary, Coordinating beneficiary, Co-financer Considering the intensity of use of numerous Adriatic and lake beaches during the tourist season and the consumption habits of tourists, the problem of beach pollution with small waste that decomposes slowly or does not break down at all is becoming more and more pronounced, and accumulates on the beach, and partially ends up in the sea and pollutes it. The problem is particularly pronounced on natural beaches (stone, gravel, sand) where concessionaires or utility companies are unable to remove small waste by machine or by hand, or this work is financially unacceptable. Goals: 1. Through systematic and adequate information, influence the development of the ecological attitude of tourists towards the beach and its sustainable use. 2. Use the same info-system to warn tourists about the expected ecological behavior on the beach and the necessity of using the Eco-bin or some other available way of disposing of small waste. 3. With a designed system of acquisition and distribution of eco-bins, enable tourists to use them at the moment of small waste generation, on the beach or any other place in the environment.

Description of organisation Organisation’s previous experience Looking for … Role of partners sought Description of own project/project sought
Our aim is to create a community that should be a catalyst of change and to create an ecosystem based on generating clean energy as a foundation towards creating a climate neutral city, the best possible place to live, work and visit. We believe that this could happen only by public – private collaboration and co-creation. And this is how we are working, as an intersection where public and private needs and curiosity reveal the potential, this potential is creating action, and careful planning of actions is bringing us to creation of the best possible place to live, work and visit.
KLIK is supporting the City of Križevci in their determination to embark on a 100% renewable energy path by developing renewable energy projects and creating climate change resilience of the local community. KLIK is working on raising awareness on energy transition, renovation and RES use benefits and how this fits in the bigger picture of climate neutral Europe, but also offering first advice service and guidelines which will bring other citizens in the energy community. In 2021 KLIK and City of Križevci have established an Energy-climate office, first of its kind in Croatia, which is based on one-stop-shop principles. For now, it’s serving as an education and information office for citizens until a proper business model is developed. It’s also offering help to citizens with acquiring RES subsidies. The goal for the Office is to extend the offers of energy transition actors, entering as a new stakeholder in the value chain of climate transformation process and energy transition to ensure a more resilient structure for all actors of the transition and to promote the whole energy transition initiative.
KLIK has won EUSEW 2023 award in the Local Energy Action category for developing an energy community in Croatia bringing clean energy to citizens.
We are:
● identifying local community needs
● bringing technology in social environment
● supporting the City in energy transition and climate resilience efforts
● educating the local community on RES and climate change mitigation
● empowering the local community through collaboration, co-creation and capacity building

Future cities of South East Europe (2020-): an international project supported by EIT Climate-KIC. Within this initiative, five cities (Skopje, Maribor, Sarajevo, Križevci and Niš), will try to achieve the EU goal of reaching climate neutrality as a continent by transforming cities and communities into climate resilient.
Compile (2018-2022): The main aim of COMPILE is to demonstrate the opportunities of energy islands for decarbonisation of energy supply, community building and creating environmental and socioeconomic benefits.
Living streets (2021): City of Križevci, along with Poreč, was selected at the Public Invitation of the Terra HUB Associationfor the implementation of the living streets experiment within the EUKI Living streets project funded by the European Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.KLIK was subcontracted by the City to implement the activities and manage the experiment because of its strong knowledge and experience with citizen engagement. KLIK has successfully managed the marketing, implementation, dissemination and further engagement of the citizens included in the experiment.
Powerpoor (2021-2023): is an international project of 8 pilot countries and 14 partners. The main aim of the POWERPOOR project is to provide a platform for the exchange of experiences and knowledge, facilitate the verification of smaller energy efficiency measures and the installation of RES, increase the active participation of citizens through the establishment of energy communities and through alternative financing schemes.
City of Križevci is one of the pilot cities that established an Energy poverty centre which is being managed by KLIK cooperative. Through the Centre, relevant data will be collected from the households in the community and educational programme will be conducted to educate volunteers on tools for mitigation of energy poverty.
InnoFinRES (2022): is a project focused on innovative financial models to support a transition to renewable energy sources in North Macedonia. Through the process of co-developing a localized impact-investment financing model with relevant stakeholders, leveraging crowdsourcing or similar mechanisms to offset the costs of and enabling local government to reinvest savings in RES- transition, this project has developed novel financing instruments and business models.
