The last project webinar took place today and it described the main features of the FISSAC Industrial Symbiosis platform, thanks to the contribution of the developers of this online tool.

 

ACR+_Introduction

 

The FISSAC platform helps users to maximise the environmental, social and financial benefits of Industrial Symbiosis networks to support circular economy structure. Following the structure of a tutorial, the webinar explains how the platform can facilitate the formation and operation of IS networks. Furthermore, even if the main target users are industrial symbiosis experts and facility users, simpler observers can also make use of the platform, just selecting a different kind of account. In that case, they will have an overview and collect specific information related to Industrial Symbiosis experiences in Europe.

The FISSAC Consortium is happy to announce the last webinar of the project.

Almost one month passed from the official launch of the FISSAC IS platform during the Final Conference and the users are increasing. The webinar aims to explore all the features of the platform.

The platform is able to support decision making in material flow analyses and industrial clustering. The fundamental aim of the FISSAC IS platform is to demonstrate and maximize environmental, social and financial benefits of Industrial Symbiosis networks to support circular economy structure. Furthermore, the platform will facilitate the formation and operation of IS networks.

The webinar will take place on 26 February 2020 at 10:00 am (CET time).

Do not miss the opportunity to be guided through the platform by the real developers.

European projects are always full of logos with high-quality design and FISSAC, with its 25 partners, is surrounded by logos. Yet, the success of FISSAC is the result of collaboration not only among organisations and companies but also among different cultures, languages, people. In these 4 and a half years of work, the symbiosis generated wasn’t only industrial. It has been a human symbiosis made of respect, mutual learning, and cooperation.

For once, it’s time to give space to those faces which have been behind the project and worked hard to reach important results in fostering the industrial symbiosis in the construction sector. Let them explain to you what FISSAC means.

What’s there behind the logos?

This is it. The Final Conference of the FISSAC project took place on 29 January 2020, in Brussels. It has been a great opportunity to discuss the topics that were analysed and investigated towards more than four years of hard and exciting work.

The FISSAC consortium said no to a traditional and static conference, choosing instead for a participative and dynamic event. The participants could get an overview not only on the FISSAC results but also on the current EU agenda regarding industrial symbiosis and the future opportunities of funding.

The Final Conference hosted also the official launch of the FISSAC platform with a first live session which had the purpose to encourage the interested people to become users of the platform and to give relevant feedbacks to even better improve the tool.

Seven excellent hosts managed 3 rounds of conversations (or Conver-stations) on 7 different stories related to the industrial symbiosis, such as the role of the local authorities, other ambitious projects, the future of the glass in the buildings‘ sector and the social acceptance of industrial related projects. The participants could choose three stories they were more interested in and each host moderated three sessions of conversation around the specific story. Each Conver-station was a safe space not only to listen but also to put on the table new and personal perspectives.

Finally, four external speakers represented the perspective of the EU Commission, the regional authorities, the social sciences and the different stakeholders involved in the Living Labs. Their contribution has been central to guide the last session of the event, where the participants worked in small groups to elaborate on recommendations and messages to foster the industrial symbiosis in all the industrial value chains around Europe.

The Final Conference ended leaving the participants with some new knowledge, a new perspective, new ideas and new contacts to work more on spreading the industrial symbiosis and circular economy’s pillars.
