Innovation in waste management: Linking the ‘circular economy’ and the ‘waste hierarchy'
26 November 2014, Espoo, Finland
The workshop addresses the macro environmental effects of the diffusion of non-landfill waste management technologies for MSW by adopting an LCA approach. During the session, the participants will explore possible changing pressures from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.
The presentations will explore observed ex post trends (1996-2011) and on ex ante scenarios (2012-2030 and beyond). The experts and guests are invited to discuss policy and economic implications of (saved) external costs from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.

The COoperation on EUropean Research in Economics Coordination Action is intended to bring together the key stakeholders in the European economic research space – scientists, users of research in the policy community or the private sector, and funders of research – in a process of stocktaking, consultation and evaluation in order to propose an Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe. COEURE is financed under the 7th Framework Programme.
The main objectives of COEURE are to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the European research in economics and to map the frontiers of economic research, assessing the European contribution to these frontiers and evaluating its potential to contribute to the policy issues on the European 2020 Agenda.
This conference’s objective is to mobilize the community of researchers in economics, decision makers on economic affairs and managers of economic research around COEURE.
