Who Should Attend
This certificate programme is designed for professionals who want to learn more about Circular Economy and Circular Procurement with specific emphasis on the regulatory context and the enabling policy conditions. The programme differs from other CE offerings which are usually geared toward sustainability and environmental professionals, engineers, material scientists, entrepreneurs and business students and will be particularly relevant for lawyers, policymakers, regulators and decision-makers desirous of harnessing circularity as a transformational force in society.
No prior knowledge of the Circular Economy or Public Procurement is necessary, though it would be an asset.
