Our mission is to support the transformation from a linear to a circular economy, a “resource-full” alternative to the traditional “resource-depleting” model that promotes sustainable growth and innovation.

The European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform has acknowledged the CERC as one of the good practices in the domain of Circular Economy. The acknowledgment has been made public on the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform (ECESP) website, enabling us to be part of a unique network hub of active stakeholders in the field. We are very proud and motivated to support and work with the ECESP as a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee in making the circular economy a reality.
Circular Economy Research Center is a firm supporter of the endeavor of the European Union for A European Green Deal as announced by the European Commission. Our work will have a special focus on the domain of research, education, and skills generation and we will work hand-in-hand with our strong network of educational, industrial, and institutional collaborators to also support the implementation of the new Circular Economy Action Plan.
We are proud to partner in the new SHARED GREEN DEAL project in which we are contributing from diverse angles for the creation of a scientifically evidence-based Circular Economy framework, which will support the overall EU effort. This project will work directly with families in fuel poverty, as well as with schools, housing associations and businesses. Skill-sharing workshops, toolkits for other local networks, and accessible training videos will be developed which focus on sharing energy-saving know-how between generations.
We are taking a decisive step for the climate by supporting the shift to a circular economy and implementing the European Green Deal through education, training, and research to shape a climate-friendly society. Our Multitopic Pathway Pledge under the European Climate Pact aims to inform, inspire, and support climate action, environmental protection, and the upcoming twin (digital and green) transformation. We also aim to lead by example and become a bridge between civil society, interested stakeholders, and the European Commission by offering research-based knowledge in the domain of circular economy to enhance the collective efforts to upskill and reskill the workforce in Europe and the world.
We want to enable everyone to sharpen their knowledge of the transformation and to be enabled to understand it, embrace it, and prepare for it. The circular economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economic model of “produce-consume-waste”. Circular Economy is a “make-use-enrich” model that allows the economic ecosystem to do ‘more with less’ and transition to sustainable growth that fosters innovative practice and thinking. Students, researchers, experts, and executives will benefit and rapidly expand from this growing body of cutting-edge knowledge.
