Circular business models & experimentation
The Belgian national science funding association FWO’s 90 year anniversary spotlighted the future national research agenda, focusing on collaboration to solve complex societal questions such as climate change.
Prof Nancy Bocken contributed with a session on Circular Economy, together with Prof Steven van Passel (University of Antwerp), associate Prof. Jouni Korhonen (KTH Sweden) and Prof. Karel van Acker (KU Leuven).
Nancy contributed with work on circular business models and experimentation including ongoing circular experimentations such as H2020 project CIRCUSOL on innovative business models for circular solar panels, and start-up HOMIE’s pay per use circular and sustainable business model.
Others from Lund University contributed on the topic of ecosystem services with Katarina Headlund from Lund University Department of Biology focusing on eco-systems services in our changing climate.
The event spotlighted key future research areas across all domains where climate change and circular economy got prominent attention.
