More info about the The Closed-Loop Supply Chain conference

The Closed-Loop Supply Chain conference is an annual meeting that brings together researchers and stakeholders from industry as well as government to elaborate on current challenges in this field. This conference plays an important role, not only on bridging the gaps between academia, industry and policy makers, but also exploring the new research areas for researchers. Continuing and extending the work of a European research group, ‘REVerse LOGistics and its Effects on Industry’ (REVLOG), the network of closed-loop supply chain now comprises leading international universities and institutions, which are interested in sharing ideas and conducting practice driven scientific research. Multiple books and papers have resulted from this long-lasting cooperation.
