New topic for DG CONNECT.
Previous activities mainly funded projects for tagging systems/IoT (RTD and Future internet unit).
ICT and waste in H2020 is in the Challenge 5, Focus area Waste.
H2020– CH5 -Waste Focus area:
Waste 3-2014: Recycling of raw materials from products and buildings.
Scope : 1) developing of innovative solutions, including pre-processing technologies, comprehensive metallurgical recovery and advanced information and communication technologies, for the recovery of minerals and metals from complex end-of-life products;
Impact : unlocking a significant volume of raw materials through the conversion of wastes into valuable resources. Energy efficiency, reduced environmental footprint, measured by qualitative and quantitative indicators.
ICT will participate in the 1 activity (DG CONNECT budget 4 Mio)
Waste 4-2014-2015: Toward a near zero-waste at European and global level
Scope : 1) the creation of a EU waste stakeholder's platform, including eco-innovation and business models, for waste prevention and management. Synergies with current EU initiatives should be considered.
A roadmap addressing specific waste streams, including ICT-electronic waste roadmap should be developed.
