The main goal of the symposium is to provide an opportunity for young professionals who perform research in industrial ecology (IE) to present and discuss their novel research ideas and experiences, receive constructive feedback, and network with senior professionals in the field. The theme of SIEYP V is “Communicating your research to a broader audience - How to communicate your research to your peers, the New York Times, and your grandma” and it aims to provide young professionals with skills to better communicate their research to diverse audiences.
Participation is free of charge, and travel scholarships are available to help students attend SIEYP and the main ISIE/ISSST conference.
