The circular economy has gained rapid traction with many thought leaders positioning it as the most dominating trend, biggest revolution and most significant opportunity for how we organise production and consumption in our global economy in 250 years. This masterclass will use case studies to demonstrate how organisations are creating new value from Circular Process and Product Innovation and Circular Business Models. It will also highlight some of the challenges to implementation.
This masterclass series on Circular Economy is a collaboration between the University of York Management School and the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
