Theme: Circular Economy
Circular economy refers to an economic system built on circular materials flows, instead of the more conventional economic systems where a product is being produced, used and trashed. In a circular economic system, materials produced are used, later to be reused, repaired, repurposed or recycled. The underlying idea with circular economy is to build an economic system which favors a circular economic flow and de-couples the resource use and emissions from the growing economy. Thus, producing systems where the economy is flourishing, without the negative environmental impacts.

Circular economy has already been adapted in a small scale and in a number of sectors through out the region. But in order to truly change the resource extraction and emission patterns on a large scale, the system needs to be up-scaled.

Thus, we are welcoming Baltic Sea Region scientists to present their research, related to the topic Circular Economy in the context of the Baltic Sea Region. We welcome you to submit an abstract at this link.
