Wonyong Choi), Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Korea (prof. Seunghee Han) and Yonsei University, Korea (prof. Giehyeon Lee).
During the workshop it was said that our future depends on innovation and technological advances to significantly reduce the pressures and the energy input as well as to align production with the concept of the circular economy. Academic research should work together with the industry and society. Through research, we are discovering new ways to implement advanced technologies, to address emerging environmental challenges as well as use research findings to influence policymakers and promote socially responsible policies.
Established this year, the workshop could be the leading environmental platform where top experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, representatives of public administration and social initiatives present state-of-the-art research on current and emerging environmental issues.
