This year in parallel to traditional oral sessions, we would like to introduce new “networking sessions, conceived as informal discussion groups where participants can share their own perspectives on a particular topic, policy, research or innovation.

A networking session may be the perfect chance to start working on a good paper (review paper, new scientific contribution or just a communication) to be possibly included in the forthcoming special issue of Waste Management Journal on “Urban Mining and Circular Economy” or a place to develop collaborative relationships in the context of the opportunities offered by Horizon 2020 and the Juncker Commission’s work programme.

Attendance to these sessions will be limited. We kindly ask all interested participants to contact the Organising Secretariat at in order to book their seat.
