Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Innovations have been the building blocks of successful economic performance since industrialisation. Faced with the new sustainability priorities, we expect innovation to continue to represent people’s creativity, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship, but also the broader societal and environmental considerations in transitioning to more sustainable ways of living. This Special Issue calls for submissions related to new green (i.e., environmental or low-carbon) technologies that help improve transportation, energy supply and demand, buildings and construction processes, industrial processes and goods, agricultural processes and food production, rehabilitation of contaminated sites, reforestation, water provision and treatment, sanitation, pollution reduction, or any other aspects of human activities. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged.
Prof. Dr. Dora Marinova
