Chair / Presidente: Jan Slavik (CZ)

The main aim of the workshop is to increase awareness about the scientific contribution of social sciences (especially economics) to the current waste management research. We will provide information about the usefulness of economics, including its applications, in the waste management research and how economics can support the research based on other scientific approaches. Furthermore, the role of economics in the current waste management policy of the European Union will be emphasized, with a focus on circular economy.
