The changed production and working conditions emphasise the importance of non-technical innovations, which often cannot be promoted within the framework of the existing technology and innovation programmes of the Federal Government. Open user-related development and implementation processes are becoming increasingly important. The project therefore aims to determine such forms and public funding requirements as well as funding measures in a way that optimises decision-making.

Dialogues on the Waste Avoidance Program II

The continuous large amounts of waste produced are valuable resources. Waste avoidance is therefore of great importance. The first federal and state waste avoidance program responds to this. However, the approaches often lack practical relevance, which is why a stronger concretization and binding nature of waste avoidance is necessary.
