Partnerships for Circular Economy: firm-centric, consortium and market-based approaches

Which kind of partnerships will promote the circular economy?

Circular Economy is currently developed through a wide variety of approaches. Either led by a company (Rolls Royce or SEB), co-constructed by several actors (Aquaponics) or facilitated by platforms (Phenix), several types of partnerships are emerging, which present specific strengths and challenges. This conference will bring together ESCP Europe’s European partners and will provide a unique opportunity to learn about several case studies conducted very recently in different countries.
