Following the impact of Covid-19 on the activities of the WasteForce project, the European Commission granted a five-months extension to the project, which will now end in May 2021.
Trainings in 2021
The scheduled training events in Germany on road inspections and in Slovenia on port inspections, had to be postponed due to the travel restrictions. The same applies for the EU-Asian training, which is to be held in Thailand.
The project team will continue to prepare the outstanding trainings for the first half of 2021 and in the meantime will continue with its other work on the Waste Crime Alerts, webinars, tools and the development of the Waste Inspection Reference App.
The closing conference is scheduled to be held in May 2021 in Geneva. The final report and deliverables will be presented there as well.
