Sobre o curso

This course looks at where important materials in products we use every day come from and how these materials can be used more efficiently, longer, and in closed loops. This is the aim of the Circular Economy, but it doesn’t happen on its own. It is the result of choices and strategies by suppliers, designers, businesses, policymakers and all of us as consumers. In addition to providing many cases of managing materials for sustainability, the course also teaches skills and tools for analyzing circular business models and promotes development of your own ideas to become more involved in the transition to a Circular Economy. You will learn from expert researchers and practitioners from around Europe as they explain core elements and challenges in the transition to a circular economy over the course of 5 modules: Module 1: Materials. This module explores where materials come from, and builds a rationale for why society needs more circularity. Module 2: Circular Business Models. In this module circular business models are explored in-depth and a range of ways for business to create economic and social value are discussed. Module 3: Circular Design, Innovation and Assessment. This module presents topics like functional materials and eco-design as well as methods to assess environmental impacts. Module 4: Policies and Networks. This module explores the role of governments and networks and how policies and sharing best practices can enable the circular economy. Module 5: Circular Societies. This module examines new norms, forms of engagement, social systems, and institutions, needed by the circular economy and how we, as individuals, can help society become more circular.

The course focused on how to drive circular economy through sustainable business model innovation and enablers such as policies. The course initially discussed material management and eco-design methods but not into details. If you are looking specifically more into eco-design and sustainable material selection hands on, I recommend checking Mike Ashby's method and his book "Materials & Sustainable Development". In addition, there was great sustainable material selection software called "Granta Design CES" , spin-off from the university of Cambridge recently acquired by Ansys, this software is a great tool for any engineer working on sustainable product design. Overall, I recommend this course for anyone interested in circular economy in general and sustainable business model innovation.

It was an interesting course, but I was expecting more technical knowledge about environmental resources. To me, it showed in a negative way that the course was a collaboration: it seemed a concoction of elected themes rather than a comprehensive overview of the matter, like the one done by Catherine Weetman in her book A Circular Economy Handbook: How to Build a More Resilient, Competitive and Sustainable Business, for example.

I think that the course gives interesting tips to get started to circular economy. On the other hand I think that in the videos a lot of contents are repeated while others useful written in the lectures on pdf are not mentioned. I think that some contents might be treated with a more theoretical approeach, more similar to a university lectures rather than simply give some tips.

T​he course maybe is okay, but I found it to be not relevant. examples should be given about what things like ports and warehouses do about circularity (or if they are even relevant to the discussion), what is the role of fossil fuels in the circular economy (or if they should all be abandoned)

was nice overall to give a basic understanding and appreciated the companies examples. It would be nice to know more were we can access a list of all companies driving sustainability agendas to get in contact

The concept & views are retty clear but some of the lectures and instrutors have some problem of developing the ideas properly.

This course covers an important topic of environmental sustainability for our economy. For that I will it receives one star. It also has high video production quality and receives a second star for that. However, after that the course really breaks down. Many of the reading materials include low resolution images that are unreadable. The actual content of the course is either way too general (e.g., waste is bad and reducing waste is good) or specific case studies that are interesting, but often lack serious substance. Overall, I wanted to get more out of this course and did not. Another unfortunate area is that most weeks there is a short assignment that requires very little effort and is basically just a nominal exercise. Although the exercise themselves are very easy and good to enact some of the principles, you need to review three peers for each and this required me checking multiple times a day for almost a week to get my required reviews. I hope the creators of this course will at least upgrade the graphics in the reading materials to make them high resolution and readable.

it is unfair to let peers from the course assess my work and give me un realistic score which could cause me to fail the course.
