The workshop will run alongside the NICOLE Spring Workshop Paris 2023, which is being organized by the Network for Industrially Co-ordinated Sustainable Land Management in Europe (NICOLE).

The NWE-REGENERATIS project has been running for almost 4 years now, and it has brought together leading researchers, academics, and professionals from around North Western Europe to discuss the latest developments in the field of land and materials resource recovery. The final workshop will provide a platform for the project team to showcase their research findings and share their experiences with other professionals in the field. The workshop will include keynote speeches, presentations, and panel discussions on a range of topics related to resource recovery from Past Metallurgical Sites and Deposits.
