Conference Circular@WUR, 6-8 december 2021 at Wageningen Campus

Based on the call for sessions, the organizing committee has developed an inspiring program that supports the identification of pathways to accelerate the transition towards a circular bio-based society. The program involves relevant and impactful keynotes; masterclasses and workshops in which you can learn and experience the circular challenge yourselves by participating in masterclasses, scientific sessions presenting the latest scientific developments and the opportunity to get inspired by visiting the most innovative circular companies in the Netherlands.

We invite you to contribute to the program and submit your abstract for an oral presentations under the session “Water efficiency and water recycling: what are the options?”. Fresh water is a crucial resource all over the world. However, there is a growing mismatch between water supply and demand. How can we improve the efficiency of water use? How can we improve responsible water reuse and cooperation between different users like industry and agriculture?

The Circular@WUR conference is hosted as a normal physical conference on Wageningen Campus. For those for whom it is not possible to attend live, the possibility is offered to follow the conference online. The entire conference will be broadcast via live stream. If COVID-19 regulations do not allow live hosting of the conference, the event will be postponed to a date to be determined in 2022.

Mirjam Hack-ten Broeke (WUR/WER) and Ruud Bartholomeus (KWR Water Research Institute) are organising a session on “Water efficiency and water recycling: what are the options?” under the theme ‘Biosphere: Rethinking our food and bio-based systems’.
