Putting Science into Standards (PSIS) Workshop - Circular Technologies for Construction Industry

European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), together with CEN and CENELEC, 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 and will bring together stakeholders from research, scientific and standardization communities together with policymakers to exchange views on standardization needs for implementing circular technologies in the construction sector.


  • 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 the participation of the scientific community in future standardization activities

This workshop is for:

  • Researchers
  • Innovators
  • Industry
  • Standardisers
  • Policymakers
