Conference – Industrial symbiosis

In 2018, the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award draws attention to the theme of industrial symbiosis. The award winner, Kalundborg Symbiosis from Denmark, will receive the award on the evening of 24 October. In connection with their stay in Gothenburg, we will organise a 2-day conference on industrial symbiosis at the Dome of Visions at Lindholmen in Gothenburg. On the first day of the conference, 23 October, we will primarily focus on the construction sector and circular material flows – what challenges are we facing and how can businesses and municipalities find a way forward? On the second day of the conference, 24 October, we will discuss opportunities for cooperation and the need for a platform for industrial symbiosis in western Sweden. We know that Linköping University administers a national collaboration and that Sotenäs Municipality works actively through the Sotenäs symbiosis centre. However, there is no cooperation involving the entire Västra Götaland region, something we now want to establish.

When: 23 – 24 October 2018
Where: Dome of Visions, Lindholmspiren, Gothenburg
