Sardinia Academy of Waste Management
2nd Edition - Training Webinars


Following the enthusiastic success of the 2021, we are proud to annouce the 2nd edition of the SARDINIA ACADEMY OF WASTE MANAGEMENT, an annual online training programme promoted by IWWG - International Waste Working Group

The programme consists of weekly webinars devoted to a series of different WM topics, in which leading international experts share their first-class knowledge addressing topics of widespread interest. Read more about the lecturers of the Academy >

On-demand recordings are still available to purchase by filling in the ONLINE FORM.

The courses are suited to both beginners and all those interested in furthering their knowledge of fundamental WM topics which will be extensively discussed during our Symposia (Sardinia, SUM, Venice). We decided to organise these training courses online - thus making them available to a broader audience - and months in advance, with the aim of encouraging an active and wider participation in the conference (such as presenting a paper, displaying a poster, presenting a research project, etc.).

Every webinar lasts 2 and a half hours, including ample time for questions and discussion. The scheduled time refers to Central European Summer Time.
