About icRS 2020

The International Conference on Resource Sustainability (icRS), sponsored by Resources, Conservation & Recycling journal, is a worldwide forum in which the latest research and practice in resource sustainability are shared, discussed and promoted. icRS 2020 aims to provide collaborative opportunities for researchers and industrial practitioners to advance the critical role of resources in the Circular Economy from the perspective of both underdeveloped, developing and developed economies. icRS 2020 will encourage interdisciplinarity, and welcome contributions that span the natural sciences, social sciences, and engineering. Looking forward to meeting you in Dublin and University College Dublin, Ireland.
