27/28 September 2007, ENEA Brussels
The Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU), Berlin/D, and the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW), Heidelberg & Berlin/D, in co-operation with the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment (ENEA), Bologna/I, and the Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML), Leiden/NL, organized a scientific workshop in Brussels from 27-28 September 2007: "Governance and Life Cycle Analysis. Opportunities for Going Beyond ISO-LCA".
Around 40 high-ranked scientific experts from the fields of Life Cycle approaches as well as researchers on governance aspects, policy observers as well as experts from public policy and administration met for two days in Brussels. A special intention of the workshop was to further the interdisciplinary exchange within these branches of research and policy making.
An open call for papers was distributed worldwide in spring 2007. The workshop organizers received 24 abstracts, 6 of which were selected for presentation by an anonymous peer review (download the book of abstracts here). Additionally, a number of invited experts took keynote speeches at the event, adressing a large variety of different research communities.
