Report My networking and research project was successfully carried out at all stages planned. At the EAEH 2015 conference, other panelists from my field provided me with distinct and valuable advice for my doctoral project and allowed me to join their research interest group on East Asian waste and recycling history. At Kyoto University’s Institute for Research in Humanities, I detected rare material of high significance for my doctoral thesis. In Tokyo, I gathered additional unique literature in the National Diet Library. Thanks to RUB Research School, this trip will have a long-lasting positive impact on the quality of my dissertation and integration into my field as a young researcher.
