Living Lab Italy

The third Italian Living Lab related to Fissac project took place on 4th October 2019 in Rozzano (Milan) hosted and organized by Rina Consulting. Similarly to the first Living Lab organized with the AIB (Industrial Association of Brescia) and the second Living Lab organized in collaboration with ATECAP, the Italian Technical Economic Association for Ready-Mixed Concrete, the third Living Lab represented a debate between different stakeholders involved in the Circular Economy and Industrial Symbiosis.

The main objective of this third Living Lab was to evaluate the replicability potential of circular economy models and platforms in the Italian scenario.


On 11th December 2018 the Second Italian Living Lab took place, organized by RINA in collaboration with ATECAP, the Italian Technical Economic Association for Ready-Mixed Concrete.
In line with the first Living Lab organized last year with the AIB (Industrial Association of Brescia), the second Living Lab has represented a moment of confrontation between the various stakeholders involved in various ways in the recovery of material. The main aim of the Living Lab was to highlight the critical issues and opportunities related to the circular economy, which is now considered indispensable for companies. Different representatives from the cement and concrete industry, recycled aggregate producers and stakeholders involved in the selection of construction products containing recycled materials, such as designers and construction companies, were involved in the event.



The first Italian Living Lab, organized in collaboration with Associazione Industriale Bresciana (AIB), was held on 10 November 2017. The full summary of the event is now available. (more…)
