So get those abstracts coming - the ERSCP-guys are eagerly awaiting.
Attached you get a short description of the ERSCP 2012 - very handy for you to send around to people who might be interested.
Don't forget that The PREPARE Network is one of the most important partners of the ERSCP!
The European Round Table on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP), existing since 1994, is one of Europe’s most remarkable conferences in its field.
The 15th ERSCP takes place in Bregenz, a liveable and loveable city situated between lake and mountains and well known for its cultural standing and its recreational value. The four-country-corner around Lake Constance (Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) is one of the most prosperous and dynamic regions in Europe – in economic growth as well as in sustainable development and quality of life.
In case you are interested in seeing who are coming to the meetings in Kaunas at the end of September, here's a list for you.
The deadline for registering for the meetings in Kaunas has officially been passed. In case you haven't registered yet, please write to prepare-net [at] prepare-net [dot] com - we can most likely help you.
Opportunity for exchange of experience, international networking and in-service training with BALREPA – the Baltic Rotating Energy Planning Academy
At Ea Energy Analyses, we are currently organising an energy planning course on behalf of the Baltic Sea Region Energy Co-operation (BASREC) and the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) and are looking for participants.
We would like to direct your attention to a website presenting information on life cycle management and sustainability work in the supply chain with examples and experiences from AkzoNobel and SCA, created in cooperation with Chalmers University of Technology.
The site has been developed within the TOSCA project, supported by the EU Life + programme. The site will be continuously updated during the project. The project runs between 2009 and 2011.
All the hard work of PREPARE's fine members has paid off: PREPARE is online with a brand new website. We invite you to take a look around, and see what it does (registering as a user with a login, gives access to far more options and information). The site is still in beta, which means that the site will develop within the coming weeks. During the coming meeting in Kaunas, we will have a website-workshop, enabling you to get the most out of the new PREPARE website. Feel free to send us a comment on prepare-net [at] prepare-net [dot] com if you have suggestions or corrections.
