Catalysts and Dynamics

CICAT2025 seeks to identify catalysts that advance transition from innovation ecosystems to business ecosystems in circular economy. We are interested in catalysts that are related to technological, business, organizing and management, regulation, sustainbility policy, language and visual communication. As a result, we seek to create a systemic understanding of the ways by which different catalysts work together to advance circular economy.
