Multidisciplinary training in Circular Economy and smart valorisation of the rural area for new business models
The research aims to define a multidisciplinary and international training course on the Circular Economy for rural areas. The students involved address the topics of Systemic Design, production engineering, agronomy, and business to build new circular skills, in close cooperation with local enterprises.
The collaboration between the agrifood SMEs and the universities involved underlined that the first step in promoting an industrial transition towards the Circular Economy is to create awareness in companies that they need professionals with new skills in the field of circular enterprises.
