Prize for the Best Thesis in Circular Economy

In order to revitalise the Brussels economy in a sustainable way, the Brussels Government adopted the Regional Programme for the Circular Economy (BRPCE) on 10 March 2016, a part of the Region's future-oriented strategy with a vision over 10 years. The intent of the programme is to position the Brussels-Capital Region as an especially innovative European Region, a pioneer in terms of public policy in support of the development of the circular economy, through a voluntary approach of the efficient management of resources. In this context, the Region has created a Prize for the Best Thesis in Circular Economy, which recognises the best research work of students from Brussels institutions. The aim is to embed the circular economy rationale in the research projects of all Brussels faculties and universities.
