About us

JUST2CE aims at understanding, in a critical and thoughtful way, under which conditions a responsible, inclusive and socially just transition to a circular economy is possible and desirable, what technical, geopolitical and social factors can  enable  or  hamper  such  transformation  and  how  these  aspects  can contribute to the development of transitional policy measures. ​

The project will identify enablers and barriers to Circular Economy in a number of key strategic sectors – selected among those indicated by the EU Action Plan for Circular Economy – such as food production and waste, water management, critical raw materials and production in complex global supply chains. The results of this analysis will be used to develop a decision support system and macroeconomics analytical tools to design new or improve existing Circular Economy practices. ​

Key Information

WHAT WILL BE IMPROVED:

The project will allow the qualitative and quantitative assessment of Circular Economy practices and will support well-targeted policy to design new or improve existing CE initiatives. This will be implemented by a software platform freely available on the project website

WHO WILL BENEFIT:

Scholars, practitioners,
policy-makers, business and civil society organizations in the Circular Economy arena.

EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS:

  • A rigorous and comprehensive overview and analysis of the current state-of-the-art in the field  of  Circular economy
  • An integrated Decision Support System (DSS) for Responsible CE practices.  The DSS is a decision making roadmap – not standardised but shared and editable that is achieved by creating appropriate directions, interfaces, goal and scope, integration and selection procedures for each approach, in order to help decision making at each step
  • The successful completion of 10 case studies
  • Policy Briefs on Responsible Circular economy
