Science based solutions for a circular economy
We develop science based solutions for a circular economy
Together with researchers, students and society

In our knowledge and innovation hubs, we connect students from three universities with research questions that are directly connected to external stakeholders like municipalities and companies. Students have the opportunity to write a master thesis with impact in an interdisciplinary environment!
