The UNIVNET association
The main goal is to create a national platform for recycling technologies in the automotive industry.
Slovakia faces many challenges associated with greener waste management and better efficiency in waste management. UNIVNET aspires to contribute to higher efficiency and reduced environmental burden not only in Slovakia.
The potential of the UNIVNET platform to collaborate and intensify research towards a more efficient and more environmentally oriented circular economy in the automotive sector is based on the results to date, which include studies and scientific articles by UNIVNET members and teams in various areas of waste management published so far in two UNIVNET publications (2020, 2021).
A joint effort of five Slovak research universities and the Automotive Industry Association of the Slovak Republic, offer their research & innovation expertise and seek for collaboration in possible Green Deal Call 2020 project consortia.
