Partner event - SUM 2020

We are excited to announce that the Venice Symposium will be partnering with another important IWWG event: SUM 2020 - Fifth Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy.

SUM 2020, originally planned for 18-20 May 2020 in Bologna (Italy), has been rescheduled for 18-20 November 2020 and converted to a virtual event due to the COVID-19 emergency. 

SUM is an IWWG biennial event covering fundamental topics such as waste avoidance, sources and characterization of resources in urban areas, technologies for the extraction of materials, techniques of waste segregation, separate collection, takeback programs, recirculation pathways and markets, carbon and water footprint of material recycling, and much more.

SUM counts on the valuable support of more than 60 committee members, including leading international scientists from prestigious universities, industry representatives and members of public bodies.

Delegates interested in attending both events may take advantage of the special cumulative fees, as detailed below.
