A circular economy comprises a set of strategies to maintain and circulate products, components and materials within biological and technical cycles. Research focuses on the development of local and regional-scale flows for a more resilient circular economy. Intersecting areas include the study of socio-ecological systems, common-pool resources, and knowledge commons. Image: ecoregions.
Open Source Biomaterials
Through the platform Materiom, research focuses on materials made from polymers derived from renewable sources of biomass and common minerals. Themes include the identification of abundant sources of biomass, sourcing and extraction techniques, and open source and FAIR data infrastructure for accelerated research and development.
