EIT RawMaterials will co-organise with DG Grow a matchmaking event related to different aspects related to the support of Industrial Symbiosis in Europe. The matchmaking event will include a presentation of different activities/measures and analysis aiming to support and facilitate Industrial Symbiosis.
The European Commission (DG GROW) has selected Technopolis Group, in consortium with UCL, Trinomics, TNO and International Synergies to conduct a study on cooperation fostering industrial symbiosis (IS). The aim of the study is to assess the market potential, good practice and potential actions to promote industrial symbiosis across EU, including testing the feasibility of an EU platform for industrial symbiosis.

Purpose of the workshop

The workshop aims to bring together key stakeholders in the field of IS, to present the study findings and have a dynamic in-depth discussion on key topics for the success of industrial symbiosis. Moreover, we want to showcase good practices from European initiatives of facilitating IS, market-based platforms, and policy actions supporting IS, and draw conclusions for future policy actions.
The workshop is funded by the European Commission and EIT RawMaterials.
