Two members from the CaReWood-Consortium (TUM and PTS) attended the European Resources Forum on November 10th-11. 2014 as well as the National Resources Forum on November 12th 2014 in Berlin. As part of the Work Package 5, CaReWood wants to develop methods to assess the resource efficiency of cascading processes. Both events were a good opportunity to get state-of-the-art information on resource policy and research and get in contact with other scientists to set a foot in the world of managing our scarce resources. Concluding, there is still a long way ahead of us until there are reliable methods to assess resource efficiency in all its complexity on product level.
More information on the European Resources Forum can be found on their website or the student’s blog. The next European Resource Forum will be in 2016, the first austrian resources forum will be in January, 21st and 22nd 2015 (in german).
