Digital transformation in the waste management industry
Today, digitalisation has become a challenging buzzword for future-oriented planning and action concepts in practically all areas of life and thus also for all economic and administrative sectors. In the waste management industry, digital transformation stands for a comprehensive change in processes and services due to advancing digitalisation. It is changing all areas of operations, the relationship with customers, suppliers, subcontractors, business partners, the way of communication.
The Heidelberg Symposium on Digital Transformation in the Waste Management Industry provides a look at the status quo and the challenges of the circular economy, speakers report on their experiences and paths in digitalisation, IT experts demonstrate solutions for the tasks and we look at the developments in the cities, regions and Europe.
In the first part of the symposium, representatives of waste management companies will report on the current status and development of the digital transformation in their companies and their strategies for the future.
In the second part, experts will inform about the latest developments in technology and software that can drive the digital transformation in the industry. Demonstrations provide insights into the applications. Exchange and advice in direct dialogue.
