Description: C-SERVEES aims to boost a resource-efficient circular economy in the electrical and electronic (E&E) sector through the development, testing, validation and transfer of new circular economic business models (CEBMs) based on systemic eco-innovative services that include: eco-leasing of EEE, product customization, improved WEEE management, and ICT services to support the other eco-services. ICT tools (relying on QR codes) will be developed as the driver of the proposed eco-innovative services to take full advantage of the potential and synergies of two major revolutions of our time: the circular economy and the Industry 4.0. For International E-Waste Day we will be highlighting some of the results of the project through a social media campaign that will encourage business and household consumers to consider how their use of electrical equipment might change in the coming years so that the environmental impact of such equipment can be significantly lowered.

Description: As a part of the Sustainable Futures Research Group at KU Leuven, I will be delivering a guest lecture on "Governance and Sustainable Management of Electronic Waste in India" at PGDAV College, University of Delhi, New Delhi. Further, I have submitted a few newspaper/magazine articles on E-waste to be considered for publishing on the occasion of IEWD in both English and Assamese (the official language in the North-East Indian state of Assam). Considering the fact that India has one of the largest youth populations in the world today, the aim is to create awareness on E-waste among them in order to ensure an informed and responsible set of consumers in the near future.
