ReUseWaste Annual Meeting in Vila Real, Portugal

The third ReUseWaste Annual meeting was successfully held in Vila Real, Portugal from September 8th - 10th, 2014. The aim of the meeting was to take stock of fellows progress as well as to discuss outputs and activities for the forthcoming final period of the project. As usual, the final day of the event was an interesting study tour. The ReUseWaste Advisory Board also attended the meeting and provided valuable insights to the project.
