On the 1st of July 2024 in Leuven (Belgium), CircEUlar, together with IAM-Circ, Circomod, and ScarCyclET, will organise a Joint workshop on Circular Economy Economic Modelling.
On March 14th, CircEUlar will run its first expert stakeholder workshop ‘Towards Net-Zero through a Circular Economy’ in Brussels, organised by T6 Ecosystems, together with Bruegel. Experts and decision makers from the fields of circularity, mobility, built environment and digitalisation will be present.
A recent study in Transportation Research Part D by Berrill et al. sheds light on sustainable urban living by examining the intricate associations between urban form, car ownership, and travel behavior across nineteen diverse European cities.
Over the past month, T6 Ecosystems, responsible for CircEUlar stakeholder and policy engagement as well as for the project’s communication and dissemination activities, has been conducting expert interviews.
How values, beliefs, and norms influence circular consumption and citizenship behaviours: initial findings
Over the past few months, the University of Groningen, a project partner with CircEUlar, conducted an initial study on factors that influence whether people engage in circular behaviour related to mobility and housing.
Building from a past machine-learning (ML) model analysing the impact of urban form on energy demand, CircEUlar partner INEGI is now working on expanding it to a circularity perspective, with a view at informing policies and strategies towards carbon neutral urban areas.
In the face of the global challenge of climate change, materials, and circular economy policies emerge as vital players, deserving a central role in IAMs. The integration of these elements into the models
becomes our pathway toward a more effective and holistic low carbon future.
The 16th Annual Meeting ofIAMChas been held in Venice from November 14-16. This year’s was co-chaired by CIRCOMOD Co-Principal Investigator Detlef van Vuuren (PBL) and CircEUlar Co-Principal Investigator Volker Krey (IIASA) with several contributions to the session stemming from these two Horizon Europe funded sister projects.
Unveiling the Environmental Impact of Mobility Infrastructure: A Global Analysis of Material Stocks and GHG Emissions
A recent study led by our CircEUlar member Dominik Wiedenhofer conducts a global assessment of material stocks in mobility infrastructure (roads and rail-based systems, including bridges and tunnels), their associated material flows, and embodied greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for 2021.
In the CircEUlar project, we will be assessing the contribution of digitalisation toward net-zero and circular economy targets under different social and economic development assumptions (the ‘Shared Socioeconomic Pathways’ (SSPs) used in IPCC assessments).
