Event description

Description

The Imperial Network of Excellence in Sustainability through Life Cycle Approaches (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/life-cycle-network/) aims to connect life cycle-related activities across Imperial College London (ICL), to increase the visibility and understanding regarding the relevance of life cycle approaches, and to connect to the wider UK (and international) life cycle community. The Network's official launch event on Wednesday 8th May 2019 will see presentations on the life cycle-related research and expertise across the various departments at ICL, as well as external speakers from other academic groups and other sectors talking about their application of life cycle approaches. The event is free and open to all, providing a great networking platform for the life cycle community. We hope to see you there!
