The department of  Waste and Material Flow Management values continuous knowledge transfer and networking. Therefore, it has always been involved in the organization and realization of various national and international conferences and congresses. Besides the two self-organized conferences at the University of Rostock (Rostock Bioenergy Forum and Waste Management Forum MV), the department participates in different selection committees and organization teams. A selection of the current conferences can be found here.
