The 8th Baden Wuertemberg conference seeks to answer some of the questions raised by the recent Club of Rome report on climate emergency, including how a circular economy can contribute to reducing fossil fuel use by increasing material efficiency and reducing waste.
Following 7 successful editions, this year's program will feature 90 speakers in 15 discussions over more than 19 hours. Topics include:
- ecodesign for a circular economy
- circular policymaking on synthetic materials
- resource efficiency in tomorrow's manufacturing
The conference will also feature a project incubator (KongRESS LAB) for students and young professionals, where teams can develop their ideas while attending and then pitch these to their follow participants.
