The Hospital Environment & Waste Manager – February 2016 issue

Welcome to the February 2016 edition of the HE&WM newsletter, the newsletter of the EU-HCWM project. We are now passed the two year point in the project time line and the development of the training programme to underpin the award qualification pathways has now been completed and externally evaluated.

The focus of this last year of the project will be the development of the e:learning platform; the expansion of the professional networks and the publication of the exploitation plan for the project outputs in terms of the qualification and the e: learning platform.

2016 marks the final year of the project and as part of the work programme in this final year we will host a conference later in the year with the venue and date to be published in the April newsletter following our next co-ordination meeting in Italy on 15th March.

It has however been a busy period since the last newsletter and hopefully this February edition will bring us up to date with progress on the project and also highlight some of the key issues from the sector in the intervening period.

Also in this month’s issue:

  • Project Co-ordination Meetings — Skopje and Vienna
  • Project Web Site/LinkedIn/Knowledge Base
  • Latest Industry News
