Implementing the Circular Economy

The circular economy model brings together 12 strategies. The first seek to reduce the amount of virgin resources that are consumed. The next are short-loop strategies to intensify the use and extend the service life of products. Finally, the third group gives resources new life.

The implementation of a more sustainable and circular model requires an interdisciplinary scientific approach. The Network’s strength lies in its members’ wide-ranging expertise.

Bringing together more than 180 researchers, the Network is able to reach the skills and diversity that are necessary for the deployment of a new, more circular model.

Look through the list of members to see the multidisciplinary dimension of the circular economy.

All circularity strategies contribute to the same objective: meeting society’s needs while preserving resources. They aim to transform our production and consumption patterns in all sectors.

To see how these different strategies inspire research projects:

Circular economy research touches on a wide range of themes.

The research projects of Network members fall under a variety of disciplines that are all essential to shape and achieve the deployment of the circular economy.

Whether it is managing change and transition (Axis 1), developing tools to support the analysis, monitoring and measurement of a new model (Axis 2), designing innovative products (Axis 3) or identifying appropriate public policies and management strategies (Axis 4), circular economy research results in projects of all kinds.
