The main innovation proposed by the project will be the development of a holistic approach for evaluating and realising the transition towards the Circular Economy (CE), involving knowledge and methodologies from multiple domains (including Supply Chain Management, Environmental Science, Environmental and Ecological Economics, Science and Technology Studies, Innovation Studies) and addressing economic, environmental and social issues. The trans-national, multi-disciplinary, multi-sector, multi-stakeholder approach proposed in this project aims to bridge the main gap in research dealing with the CE paradigm, that, to date has been characterised by a “silo” approach that has undermined theoretical development and knowledge transfer to practitioners.
Specific Objectives: (i) To review current applications of Circular Economy in the international context (mainly at meso and macro levels); (ii) To investigate the applicability in the European context, mainly characterised by self –organized systems (free-market economic principles) and in national contexts characterised by different rates of growth/de-growth; (iii) To understand and analyse empirically the role of financial and fiscal policies and incentives to boost the transition to CE.
