Event Detail


PSIS workshop on Circular technologies for construction, 12-13 December 2023 (online)

CEN and CENELEC, together with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), carry out an annual ‘foresight on standardization’ initiative named Putting Science into Standards (PSIS).

The 2023 PSIS workshop will focus on Circular technologies for construction.

It will bring stakeholders from research, scientific and standardization communities together with policy makers to exchange views on standardization needs for implementing circular technologies in the construction sector.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • specify circular principles to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable circular economy in the construction ecosystem, covering design to de-construction and end-of-life scenarios in all stages of current and subsequent life cycles
  • reflect on the finding of the gap analysis developed by CEN/TC 350/SC 1 “Circular economy in the construction sector” 
  • collect additional stakeholders’ needs to complement the gap analysis and define future standardization priorities 
  • encourage participation of scientific community into future standardization activities 

WHEN: 12 December 2023 (14:00-17:15 CET); 13 December 2023 (08:45-12:00 CET)
