As Circular X enters its second year, we look back to review (and celebrate!) the progress so far in our new first year project report.
Laura Nießen starts her PhD studies today at Maastricht Sustainability Institute, School of Business and Economics at Maastricht University. Her research is at the intersection of business experimentation, circular economy and sufficiency. Welcome Laura!
