Artificial intelligence and circular economy models: towards a regenerative industrial ecosystem

Digital event

March 23rd 2022 - 9:30-13:30 

OVERVIEW

The Circular Economy is the conceptual framework of sustainable development. The Circular Economy Summit has offered an exploration of the intersection of two emerging megatrend: artificial intelligence and circular economy, and how artificial intelligence can accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

On the way to the 2022 event, the partners of The Innovation Alliance, in collaboration with Fiera Milano, have proposed an International Summit, aimed to the stakeholders of all industrial sectors.

It is about inspiring a regenerative industrial ecosystem and implementing a new economy that is circular – not linear – based on the principle of "closing the loop" of the lifecycles of products, services, waste, materials, water and energy.

During the digital Summit, top voices from Italian and international institutions and companies, will discuss the issues that are revolutionizing the industrial scenario, requiring new skills and imposing new business models. Starting from analyses of trends and policy in environmental sustainability and AI, the goal of the event is to disseminate and enrich vision, awareness and research on Circular Economy by presenting the best circular economy solutions at a global level.
