About

Following the great success of the third edition held in 2016, which saw the participation of almost 300 delegates from a wide variety of countries, SUM 2018 / 4th Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy will be held in the old Monastery of Saint Augustine in Bergamo upper city, in May 2018.

To achieve a virtuous application and optimization of current practice, urban mining and circular economy are dependent on the appropriate combination of three worlds (TRIANGLE concept): research and technology (private and public) / administration, economy and industry / policy and regulation. This combination is equally important in other fields of waste management, although is of paramount relevance for a Circular Economy. SUM 2018 will focus on all relevant and innovative aspects relating to these three worlds. The Symposium will last three days and will include oral sessions, a poster session and a technical tour.

Advantageous conditions will be offered to companies wishing to display their practical experience and innovative technologies. Meeting opportunities will also be created to foster cooperation between those involved in industrial production and material recycling.
