18th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology

CEST2023, 30 August to 2 September 2023, Athens, Greece 

Established in 1989, the International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology (CEST) is a leading environmental conference where top experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, representatives of public administration and social initiatives present state-of-the-art research on current and emerging environmental issues. CEST is thus a platform where academia and business converge; where academic research, innovative ideas and solutions serve as the basis for a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable environment. 

The conference is organized by the Global Network of Environmental Science and Technology jointly with the University of the Aegean (Greece) and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece).

CEST2023 is announced in a time of transition from linear economic models to circular economy and bioeconomy worldwide. These topics as well as emerging research fields of the environmental sector will form the basis for scheduling sessions and side events.

The previous event (CEST2021) was a great success. gathering over 600 participants from all over the world. During CEST2021, 58 sessions were organized and over 550 papers were presented along with 18 invited and keynote speeches.
