Description: 

The circular economy has attracted attention in recent years and will profoundly impact the future of business.

The Ecole des Ponts Business school established its Circular Economy Research centre in 2017. It aims at preparing students and alumni to the changes brought about by the Circular economy. They learn to understand the system, embrace and plan for it in their domains of professional interest.

The centre teaches topics such as the sharing economy, sustainability, energy efficiency, or waste management, to name but a few. The centre strives for excellence and has already taken action in supporting this transformation process through education, training and research.

The CERC is participating in five EU Horizon 2020 funded projects with a direct link to the Circular Economy.
