The European Week of Regions and Cities will be held 7 to 10 October 2019 in Brussels. IMPEL is organising a side event with the objective of spreading the results of the discussion had within the IMPEL project “Waste management and circular economy” with particular regard to the topic of enabling circular innovations.
There is a need for a new class of infrastructures and technologies that allow the waste to be transformed into new products with full respect of the precautionary principle. Some of them are in the experimental process, but others are already implemented and obtaining good results in different European and MS regions.
The members of IMPEL agree that harmonizing the legislation is the first step for industries and governments to invest in these new industrial processes and technologies.
The IMPEL side event aims to expose and discuss with the representatives of the regions and cities the good practices emerged by the discussion within the project and disseminate its results.
The exact place and location of the event will soon be communicated. This is a save the date alert.
