Interdisciplinary Waste Workshop

Thursday 19 October 2017, 09.30 - 12.30
School of Earth & Environment Seminar Rooms 8.119
Interdisciplinary workshop

Join us and colleagues from across the University to explore the University of Leeds’s extensive research portfolio and expertise relating to waste and its social, economic and environmental causes and consequences.

The workshop takes the broadest definition of waste covering everything from air emissions to waste water and solid waste. It will include areas such as resource recovery, circular economy, energy from waste, consumer behaviour, cultural and social aspects, food waste, greening supply chains, economics and business models, air quality and sanitation, but this is just a start. In short, anyone working on any area connected to waste, however they define it, is welcome.

This event is intended to foster cross-University conversations and collaborations, and establish a network to build these relationships going forward. In addition, it will look at the funding and research opportunities in this area. There will be a further opportunity to network over lunch.

Spaces are limited, so please register early to secure your place. An indicative schedule is available and full agenda will be emailed to participants prior to the event.

If you can’t attend this event but are interested in being involved in a waste network in the future, please contact Juliet Jopson.
