The Annual Meeting of the BAMB Stakeholder Network will be held on January 23, 2018 from 10:00-18:00. An exciting program has been put together and the Consortium is looking forward to sharing what's new with the H2020 BAMB project, as well as illustrating the key functions of BAMB tools through concrete case studies and pilots.

Breakout sessions will allow participants to dive deeper into select topics. In addition, the inaugural exposition of the Reversible Experience Modules pilot project will be on site and available to explore!

The pilot is built up reversibly and showcases products in connection with their Materials Passports, while demonstrating their value for (present) use, recovery and re-use.
Visitors are invited to interact with products and to experience hands-on their value propositions related to the circular economy.

The Annual Meeting is open to all registered members of the BAMB Stakeholder Network. Not yet a member? Join today! Upon registration you will recieve your code to reserve a ticket. We hope to see you soon!

Research Headlines - A low-impact transporter lightens the load on forest soils

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Forests are versatile renewable resources, but load-carrying forestry machines can damage the soil. An EU-funded project has developed a tracked, off-road timber transporter, or forwarder, that exerts less pressure on soil, as well as a device to measure soil disturbance - part of a sustainable solution to protecting Europe's valuable forests.

Research Headlines - Better data flows to reduce water use

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) In an effort to reduce agricultural pressure on water resources - the sector accounts for up to 80 % of water use in some parts of the EU, researchers are on a mission to improve on-farm irrigation management. More precise land-surface data will make soil-water content estimates more accurate and reduce water use.

Research Headlines - Environmental modelling provides solutions for greener cities

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Urban areas and their surrounding ecosystems are under increasing strain globally as growing populations, accelerating economic development and increasing agricultural production impact land use, transport networks and air and water quality. An EU-funded project is addressed the challenge of urban sustainability with a novel integrated modelling approach to guide decision-makers towards making cities cleaner, greener and more liveable.

Success Stories - How global warming is changing when Europe's rain arrives

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Along with the rest of the planet, Europe is bracing for the impacts of climate change. Some areas are facing a range of risks, ranging from droughts to floods, but how well do we understand what to expect and how to respond?

Success Stories - Trash To Treasure: How Can We Extract Valuable Resources From Production Waste?

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Greek scientists have developed a technology that allows them to obtain rare earth elements (REEs) from waste ore in an economical and environmentally friendly way.

Success Stories - Digging deep to help Europe's soil

Mon, 08 May 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) European scientists have been digging deep so they can better understand the multiple threats facing soil which include erosion, pollution, decline of biodiversity and urbanisation. The scientists want to come up with better preventive measures.
