1 Mar 2010 14:00

The Institute for European Studies (IES) at the Vrije Universitetit Brussel and the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) kindly invite you to their next Environmental Policy Forum.

On 1 March, Mr. Reid Lifset, Resident Fellow in the Center for Industrial Ecology and Associate Director of the Industrial Environmental Management Program at the Yale University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, will present a keynote presentation.

Mr. Lifset is well known for his contributions to the development and analysis of the environmental strategy of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). He will offer insights on the challenges to creating proper incentive structures for EPR in modern environmental policy, a question that is central in the on-going revision process of the EU’s WEEE Directive on recycling waste electronics. Commenting on Mr Lifset’s presentation will be Harri Kalimo, a Senior Research Fellow at the IES.

The programme will start at 12.00 with a lunch reception. The presentations will be followed by an open discussion.
