Call for Papers

The concept of circular economy would contribute to “closing the loop” of product lifecycles through greater recycling and re-use and bring benefits for both the environment and the economy. The plans will extract the maximum value and use from all raw materials, products and waste, fostering energy savings and reducing Green House Gas emissions. The circular economy is also restorative and regenerative by design, and aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.

Is it really something new or just another “mode” of environmental related approach? Is it only about products and design or do we need old/new approaches from different side of the society?

Do you have more questions or answers? Would you like to discuss the issue? Then save the date (19-20 April 2018) and tell us what do you think!

The MTA KRTK RKI Transdanubian Research Department (Pécs) is organising an international conference celebrating its 75th anniversary and discussing the issue of a potential circular economy from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Register for the conference no later than the 21th of January, 2018.

The concept of circular economy has not to take into consideration economics or environmental science only, other social, natural and technical scientific and regional aspects should also be aimed. Therefore we suggested a wide range of sessions to be discussed. Hence we are inviting submission of papers concerning different understanding of the concept of circular economy based on a different/multiple disciplines (geography, economics, sociology, regional studies, spatial planning, environmental studies, etc.).
