ICT and the Circular Economy
Part of eFuture's 2021-22 series on "Electronic Systems for Sustainable Societies", this webinar & networking session will expore Cicrular Economy in relation to Information & Communications Techologies (ICT).
We will look at how ICT might be part of the problem (2% of global carbon emissions come from the manufacture and use of ICT) but also, importantly, play a huge part in sustainable solutions.
Chaired by Professor Geoff Merrett, University of Southampton
