FISSAC will host its next webinar in on 31 May 2018. This webinar will focus on the interactions between the highly predominant technical aspect of industrial symbiosis and the non-technical aspects, including social engagement and acceptance. Typically, the social dimension of industrial symbiosis refers to the need for firms to interact more extensively than is required for normal business practice. Topics will include concrete examples.
