Circular X - experimentation with circular business models
Project Circular X is about experimentation with circular service business models. It is an ambitious research project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) which supports top researchers from anywhere in the world. Project Circular X started on 1 June 2020 and will run for 6.5 years. The project is led by Principal Investigator Prof Dr Nancy Bocken, based at Maastricht Sustainability Institute (MSI) at the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University. Through the research agenda, the aim is to facilitate a diverse range of organisations with the implementation of the circular economy. The project closely cooperates with organisations – from small start-ups to large multinationals - who want to innovate towards the circular economy.
The B Lab communication blog B The Change has published an article on "4 Business Models for the Circular Economy - The Economic and Environmental Case for 4 Circular Approaches".
The Circular Rebound Tool was developed to guide business innovators towards lower the environmental impacts of their circular business models by preventing rebound effects.
