Environmental Systems Analysis at Chalmers now announces a series of master’s thesis projects, in collaboration with industrial partners (Volvo AB, HTC Sweden, Polyplank, Volvo Cars), which aim to evaluate circular solutions from an environmental, resource and economic perspective.
The master’s projects are integral parts of the MistraREES research program on Resource Efficient and Effective Solutions based on circular economy, see further http://mistrarees.se. This recently started four-year program aims to to advance the transition of the Swedish manufacturing industry towards a circular and sustainable economy, improving competitiveness and reducing business risk. Financed by Mistra and its partners the program is run by a by a consortium of leading Swedish universities, large and small companies and societal actors.
The master’s projects will be conducted during spring 2015. They will be supervised by REES researchers at Chalmers in collaboration with industrial partners and in one case also with Linköping University. The projects are based on expressed needs from the industrial partners and will also contribute to more generic knowledge on circular economy within the MistraREES program.
