PhD scholarships in Circular Economy at Copenhagen Business School

Two PhD scholarships in Circular Economy are opened by Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and linked to the Horizon 2020 project "REFLOW". Please find some information and the link to the call in the attached filefor your convenience. In the near future an Assistant Professor/Post-Doc position will be opened in relation to the same project.

REFLOW’s mission is to support the development of cities that are regenerative and adopt circular economy (CE) practices, through the delocalisation of production and the reconfiguration of material flows within six European cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, Milan, Paris, and Vejle. The project will provide guidance for public and private sector organizations on how to create favourable conditions for the adoption of CE practices.

CBS encourages applications investigating CE practices in the field of management accounting, also combined with the operations management and innovation management fields.

Research themes for the 2 PhD scholarships could include, but are not limited to:

  • Measuring the social and environmental impact of CE practices
  • Understanding process and implications of developing the CE practices in public and private sector organizations
  • Exploring valuation practices to assess the value(s) of CE
  • Investigating the changes in organizational management practices that are induced by the advent of CE and (blockchain) technology, and their ramifications for organizations and society as a whole.

In my position as project leader and overall coordinator, I would be happy to answer any question you may have in regard to these scholarships and the future opening.

Best wishes,
