Sardinia Academy of Waste Management

Programma Corsi di Aggiornamento

We are proud to present the SARDINIA ACADEMY OF WASTE MANAGEMENT, a new online training programme promoted by IWWG - International Waste Working Group.

The programme will consist of weekly webinars devoted to a series of different WM topics. These webinars will be the equivalent of the IWWG Training Courses usually held in the context of the Sardinia Symposia, in which leading international experts share their first-class knowledge addressing topics of widespread interest. Read more about the lecturers of the Academy >

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 the Sardinia Symposium. This year we are offering 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.).

The webinars will be scheduled every Thursday morning and will last 3 hours, from 10:00 to 13:00 (UTC+1), including ample time for questions and discussion.
