Among the 114 definitions of the circular economy proposed (Kirchherr, Reike and Hekkert, 2017), it can be stated that the circular economy—defined “as a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimised by slowing, closing, and narrowing material and energy loops” (Geissdoerferp et al. 2017, p. 759)—has been enriched by the contribution of the bioeconomy sector, given that a sustainable bioeconomy represents the renewable “segment” of the circular economy (EC 2018).
But how circular is the bioeconomy? And how pervasive it is among small and medium firms? What are the challenges and opportunities associated with a transition to a circular bioeconomy in the post COVID-19 era?
These and more will be discussed during the webinar.
