Social aspects of industrial symbiosis

From 31 May 2018 11:00 until 31 May 2018 12:15
At Webinar

This webinar, organised in the framework of the FISSAC project, will focus on the interactions between the highly predominant technical aspect of industrial symbiosis and the non-technical aspects (including social engagement and acceptance). Typically, the social dimension of industrial symbiosis refers to the need for firms to interact more extensively than is required for normal business practices. Topics will include concrete examples.
