What is the future of urban renewal, regeneration and transformation? Join us at the Erasmus-Descartes conference on November 19 to find out more! The focus of this year’s edition will be on the circular economy, the re-use of building materials and the development of innovative new materials. Associate Arjen Ketting will participate in a panel discussion on ‘Innovation, certification and new materials’ with other stakeholders from the TU Delft, ENSAP Lille and CSTB.
