The Rotterdam University for Applied Sciences (RUAS) runs a multidisciplinary Fieldlab Circular Economy and Business Innovation consisting of a minor and graduation research.
The minor component of the programme assists students and SMEs to make the transition from a linear to a circular design while creating ecological, social and economic value. The research component focuses on circular accounting, scaling strategies for circular business models, and symbiotic geographic development.
In developing circular solutions, the economic domain collaborates with the technical domain, including chemistry, the built environment, information technology etc. The multidisciplinary nature of RUAS enables students to develop solutions to circular challenges in multidisciplinary settings.
