RUNISRB - Desciption and activities

The IWWG Regional Branch for Russia and New Independent States (IWWG-RUNISRB) has been established at Perm National Research Polytechnic University (PNRPU), Russia in December 2015. The main goal of IWWG-RUNISRB is to create a platform for scientific, technical and practical information exchange on waste management among the leading scientific organizations, business representatives and state authorities of Russia,
Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine and other interested former CIS countries.
Moreover, conferences, courses, and workshops will be organized in the region in order to form a joint information platform and to
create a scientific, educational and consulting center in the field of waste management.
Russian universities from Perm, Yekaterinburg and Irkutsk took part in the branch creation process. In the future, other Universities from Russia and other countries (e.g. Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus) shall be actively involved in the activities of the branch.

The branch is coordinated by Dr. Natalia Sliusar (Associate Professor of Environmental Protection Department at PNRPU) and Prof. Vladimir Korotaev (Vice-Rector for Science and Innovation at PNRPU).
