Leiden Delft Erasmus Centre for Sustainability
Meaningful research for a circular economy
Together with scientists, students and society

Our centre is an interdisciplinary research and education centre in which three universities work together in the field of circular economy.
Our Knowledge & Innovation hubs form the core of our centre. In the hub, we offer students meaningful graduation opportunities, an interdisciplinary work environment and a network with organisations like municipalities and businesses.  Ambitious organisations are welcome to join us and work on innovations for a circular economy.
