The case for a systemic approach to eco-innovation

2 December 2014, Lyon, France

Current patterns of growth lead to the irreversible damage of our planet’s natural environment while resources are over-consumed. Furthermore, prices of raw materials are becoming more and more volatile and Europe is almost entirely dependent on imports. The traditional linear model of production and consumption, where resources are extracted processed used and disposed of, needs to be changed.

 

Single eco-innovative solutions have already been developed but they are often too local and sector-related. To achieve an absolute decoupling of growth from use of resources, society needs to adopt a different way of thinking. One solution is to move to a systemic eco-innovation approach, where society generates and shares economic and environmental benefits, where waste becomes a resource, consumers become users and sharing replaces owning. Speakers: Francoise BONNET, ACR+, Association of Regions and Cities for Recycling and Sustainable Resource Management – Secretary General Marco MATTIELLO, Contarina Spa – International Relations Manager Luisa PRISTA, European Commission, DG Research and Innovation, Directorate Climate Action and Resource Efficiency – Head of Unit "Eco-Innovation" Hanane TAIDI, PlasticsEurope – Director Communications 


Renaturing Cities: Systemic Urban Governance for Social Cohesion

1-2 December 2014, Milan, Italy

The EU Conference on "Renaturing Cities: Systemic Urban Governance for Social Cohesion", under the auspices of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU aims to to inspire Research and Innovation policies on sustainable urban development by bringing together scientists, policy makers, the business sector and representatives of the civil society.

The conference will focus on multilevel governance for urban and peri-urban areas and highlight the relation between supranational, national and sub-national scales, as well as the interplay of actors within these scales. Therefore, new instruments of urban governance based on a strong public-private partnership will be explored in order to facilitate the interplay between policy-making, market-driven actions and grassroots initiatives.

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.
