Characterization, Barriers, Policies and Business Strategies

The Circular Economy (CE) and Eco-innovation (EI) are two concepts deemed instrumental in achieving a sustainable transition. However, little is known about how different EI features contribute to the CE. 


In this research we aim to:

  1. Characterise different kinds of EI and identify and describe how different EI features contribute to the CE.
  2. Address and identify the barriers that EI faces both in its development and application.
  3. Identify those policy features and measures that can be implemented in order to help remove those barriers (or encourage the drivers), and enhance the uptake of EI to enable a transition to the CE.
  4. Address the issue of what managers can do to take up EI in their corporate strategy and move forward their circular agenda.
