Circling back provides an overview of the results of the Wageningen University & Research Investment theme Connected Circularity flagship projects. Running between 2019 – 2022, over 50 researchers from all WUR Science Groups have collaborated to generate new insights on important topics that relate to the transition to a circular bio-economy.
These topics include:
- How to create a circular design from the start and not as an afterthought while creating living communities and new ways to use bioresources in an urban environment
- How to ensure that circularity does not jeopardise health and safety for environment, animals and humans alike
- How to accelerate bio-economy initiatives through multi-actor collaboration
- How to tackle trade-offs for circularity that occur across different scales (local – regional – national – global) and to bring balanced decisions to the table of business and policy makers
Research teams from WUR have been working on ways to shape the transition to a circular bioeconomy. Read a brief review of each Flagship:
