École des Ponts Business School. Master Class of 23 June 2017
Business, management and society are changing at an ever-accelerating pace. École des Ponts Business School is proud to be at the forefront of leading and supporting novel research initiatives.
This event will lead a discussion on how Circular Economy is a “resource-full” alternative to the traditional linear “resource-depleting” economic model of produce-consume-waste. It allows the economic ecosystem to do ‘more with less’ and transition to sustainable growth that fosters innovative practice and thinking.
In addition to this event, the newly opened Circular Economy Research Center (CERC), under the direction of Professor Demetriou, is currently developing dedicated courses, a certificate and an E-MBA specialized in Circular Economy Management as well as Circular Economy training programs, a Circular Economy Live Lab, Journal and Expert Network.
