Date(s) - 31/01/2017 - 01/02/2017
The workshop is organized in the frame of the Horizion 2020 NewInno-Net project: The Near-Zero European Waste Innovation Network on 31.01.2017 and 01.02.2017 in Brussels. New_InnoNet deals with the implementation of the circular economy concept in three value chains or waste streams: Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), End-of-Life vehicles (ELV) and packaging waste. Our aim is to develop a business supported vision on how this concept could be implemented in practice. For the purpose of achieving the near-zero waste objective for the mentioned value chains and waste streams a European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) will be developed. It will take into account both: the identified gaps and barriers to overcome in order to boost innovation for the purpose of closing the material loops as well as existing innovation cases, also from other sectors, that illustrate how the concept of circular economy could be implemented in practice.
THE WORKSHOP OBJECTIVE
The objective of our workshop is to present and discuss real innovation cases, experiences and lessons learned on closing the loops for materials recovered from WEEE, ELV and packaging waste that address:
- End of life management
- Collection and reverse logistics of products and materials
- Policies, legislation and monitoring
- Product design for Circular Economy
- Market and Economy
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND?
The experiences (practical innovation cases) presented during the workshop and discussed with the participants shall provide inputs about necessary measures to be integrated into the European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for achieving a near-zero waste economy in the three waste streams electronic waste (WEEE), end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and packaging waste.
We invite stakeholders who want to:
- share your views and experiences
- propose first inputs on possible measures to help overcome innovation barriers
- contribute to the European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda
- find partners for building your innovation case
