There was no Annual Conference in 2011 as funding for the new phase of the Network was confirmed too late to allow sufficient time for conference organisation. However, an evening event was held in December 2011 to mark the launch of the new phase of the Network.
AIM: To maximise the re-use of redundant office furniture, both to protect the environment and to make quality office items available at affordable prices to charities, the community sector and small businesses.
The Conference took place on Thursday 9th December 2010 at the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, London.
The aim of the conference was to explore the implications of recent changes within government for the development and delivery of sustainable development, and what this means for the research community’s activities and priorities.
On Thursday 21st May 2009, over 45 representatives of business, academia, government and delivery bodies and agencies, attended the SDRN workshop ‘Business resource efficiency: luxury or necessity?’. Organised by AEA Technology as part of SDRN’s research into practice workstream, the workshop sought to explore the extent to which businesses could be encouraged to improve their research efficiency and procurement practices.
