JRC, EC | Safe and Sustainable by Design Boot Camp



Safe and Sustainable by Design Boot Camp

This Boot Camp will provide you with a unique opportunity to get fundamental insights in SSbD thinking, learn about the EU SSbD framework from experts in the field, share knowledge and experience, and become part of the growing SSbD community.

It is a two full days event with a highly engaging and interactive programme including presentations by experts in key SSbD fields and breakout sessions for discussion on specific topics.

The programme will focus on the SSbD framework and will build on the SSbD thinking, starting with the background of the EU framework.

The participants will learn about the concepts and assessment methods described in the framework (i.e. hazard assessment, exposure assessment, risk assessment, environmental sustainability assessment, and social and economic sustainability assessment).

In the breakout sessions participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions on real case studies, exchange knowledge and critically reflect on the different aspects of the SSbD concept to propose solutions to the identified challenges.

Who can participate?

The attendance is open to anyone interested in the SSbD framework implementation with a technical-scientific background* (considering the emphasis on the technical elements of the framework).

*Background in one of the areas is required: hazard assessment (human health and/or environment), exposure assessment, risk assessment, environmental sustainability assessment (Life Cycle Assessment), social sustainability assessment, and economic sustainability assessment.

The maximum number of participants is 30.

How to apply?
