The 12th edition of the European Forum on Eco-Innovation will be held in Amsterdam on 25 to 26 April 2012 under the title "Scaling-up sustainable construction Through value chain innovation". This forum will examine what kind of added value eco-innovation can bring in the construction sector, how eco-innovation can transform the supply chain of the industry, how to communicate this to public authorities, construction professionals and building owners, and review the opportunities and challenges as part of a sustainable construction value chain. Participation in this forum is free of charge. To attend send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
