Around 40 representatives from 19 UAS (Finland) gathered up for a development project ”Circular Economy-UAS ” kick-off meeting at Arcada 23.8.18.
Earlier this year Ellen MacArthur Foundation started their own study, and has now published the first results as a ”global snap-shot” on higher education within Circular Economy. The participants of ”Circular Economy-UAS” project were involved with this study too.
EMAF’s Research Analyst states the following: ”From a geographical perspective, Finland and the Netherlands are the front runners in this space, with 38% of all higher education institutions identified here…”
One very demanding goal for the ”Circular Economy – UAS” project is to maintain that front runner position in Finland!
