Final workshop of the SAMT and STYLE projects | SPIRE

Final workshop of the SAMT and STYLE projects

< Back

The three SPIRE04-2014 projects, MEASURE, STYLE and SAMT, are collaborating to develop a harmonised roadmap of recommendations for the use of sustainability assessment in the European Process Industries. A final stakeholder event of the projects SAMT and STYLE will take place on October 6th in Brussels.

Within the workshop, the findings of the projects will be summarized and a draft of a harmonized roadmap for sustainability assessment will be presented. The workshop will provide stakeholders a final opportunity to influence the outcome of the projects - recommendations to the European Commission for future development needs. The workshop is open to all industrial actors and stakeholders (authorities, peer organizations, researchers, NGO’s, etc.) applying or interested in sustainability assessment methods and future developments within the field. The workshop is free of charge, but places are limited and registration is required:
