Why study Circular Economy at Salzburg University of Applied Science?

The current linear economic model generates a number of problems such as resource consumption, climate change, loss of biodiversity, etc., the solution of which is postponed to future generations. A "business as usual" leads to existential crises in the foreseeable future. The transition to a circular economy represents a solution approach that has been discussed for decades (cf. Club of Rome) and is currently experiencing increased political relevance.

The continuing education module contains the following sub-areas:

  • Design of the circular economy
  • Product design, circular value creation and impact on economy and society
  • Focus on bioeconomy wood and renewable energies
  • Circular Economy - What does the market say?
  • Impact for companies and regions

Did you already know? In order to obtain a concrete practical relevance, workshops will be held with experts from exemplary companies that are already focusing on the circular economy. Keynote speeches and best-practice examples will provide material for further discussions.

We address visionary change agents who want to improve our society!
