Both the E-waste Summer School and the E-waste Academy have new names. Now in its fourth year, the successful and innovative E-waste Summer School is changing its name to E-waste Academy-Scientists Edition (EWAS). EWAS brings together academics and researchers from a broad range of disciplines to look at the e-waste issue in its entirety from multiple perspectives and through multiple academic lenses. EWAS provides a unique platform for young scientists involved in e-waste-related research to share their knowledge, interact with experts and develop collaborative partnerships that will foster high quality, cutting-edge scientific research on all areas related to e-waste, including policy, technology, economics, social aspects and more.

The E-waste Academy is changing its name to E-waste Academy-Managers Edition (EWAM). EWAM is a pioneering endeavor that aims to foster long-term, multi-stakeholder partnerships and collaboration on e-waste policy and management. EWAM provides an invaluable forum for stakeholders involved in e-waste system – including industry experts, system designers, policymakers, government officials, and others – to share their knowledge and experiences, interact with experts and form collaborative partnerships with the goal of developing and implementing long-term, sustainable solutions to the e-waste problem. Such action-oriented, multi-stakeholder collaboration is essential in order to address the complex environmental, economic and social challenges of e-waste management.
