The conference for Waste 2 Material in Construction for Young Researchers specifically emphasizes fostering the development of PhDs, Postdocs, and other emerging researchers. The primary focus of this conference is to explore the reutilization of waste materials in circular construction. Diverse thematic elements will be presented to ensure inclusivity, encompassing highly technical and social dimensions. Efficient communication channels will be actively promoted, particularly facilitating interactions between emerging researchers and senior figures from academia and industry. This endeavor will serve as a knowledge bridge, broadening the career vision of young researchers while facilitating dialogue, research, networking, and collaboration between professionals from both the academic and industrial spheres.

This conference will be a poster session-only event, with presentations exclusively reserved for keynote speakers. This supports the intention of promoting networking, collaboration, and knowledge exchange. The keynote speakers will represent diverse backgrounds, spanning academia, industry, and legislation. Through this format, we will cultivate a dynamic and inclusive atmosphere conducive to interaction and engagement among the attendees.


Please note that only the abstract submission is open and that the formal registration will open in May – 2024
