Milani also delivered a talk on July 25, titled “Induced Innovation in the Waste Management Sector,” at the first Workshop on Climate Economics, Innovation, and Policy at the University of Ottawa.
In her talk, she discussed the relationship between waste management and energy, focusing on how energy prices can encourage the development of technologies related to landfilling, incineration, and recycling. The workshop featured presentations from distinguished researchers and young scholars, and brought together policy practitioners, students, and academics from Canada and abroad.
