The UrbanWINS Project

What is the UrbanWINS project?

UrbanWINS is a European Union project funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program that will study how cities consume resources and products, and how they eliminate the waste produced, to develop and test innovative plans and solutions aimed at improving waste prevention and management.

Launched in June 2016, the project analyses current strategies for waste prevention and management in a total of 24 cities and assesses how they contribute towards resilience and resource efficiency. The project will follow the urban metabolism approach, in which cities are considered living organisms that use natural resources and create a flow of materials and energies. The results will be used to define objectives and indicators of the Strategic Plans for Waste Prevention and Management in the eight pilot cities.
