During this Transnational Meeting the highlight has been the design of the following activities expected in the project: the organization of a living lab in the Italian’s headquarters, where teachers, welders and engineers will have the possibility to share impressions about the issue and get to know the benefits of Circular Economy, making industrial processes more sustainable.
