Scope of the Symposium

The SETAC Europe 26th LCA Symposium is a two-and-a-half-day focused topic meeting aimed to gather the European life cycle community from academia, research institutes, industry, government agencies, consultancies and NGOs to share their latest research, applications and discussions about life cycle assessment (LCA). The conference will be a face-to-face meeting with both regular sessions and interactive sessions, in Gothenburg, Sweden, at Chalmers University of Technology.

The theme for this year's symposium is: “Making LCA Meaningful: Good Data, Better Models, Sustainable Decisions”. With the theme as a starting point and having the whole LCA process in mind, the aim of the symposium is to contribute to improved life cycle inventory - data (LCI-data), contribute to improved application of the life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) and develop a better understanding of the contexts in which LCA are applied and how it can be approved.

The symposium will provide a scientific programme with room for presentations, discussions, workshops and social interactions that foster good networking opportunities.
