CRADLE TO CRADLE SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM

September 14, 2018

Leuphana University, Lüneburg (Germany)

 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: August 15th, 2018

The Cradle to Cradle Science Symposium is an international event for researchers, scientists, academics and scholar students to explore revolutionary ideas & results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The C2C Science Symposium is the first scientific meeting discussing latest research in the field of circular economy, respectively product design as defined by Cradle to Cradle (C2C).

The Cradle to cradle school of thought and design concept take entirely different perspectives in order to meet today’s global challenges in an intelligent manner. The concept builds on the inherent intelligence of natural systems and states that all materials that we use can perpetually circulate in either biological or technological cycles.

The call for abstracts invites leading C2C academics from a broad range of sectors to take part in the current C2C discussions in academia and to identify challenges for future scientific and research agendas. Abstracts considered for oral or poster presentation may provide an insight into original research contributions relating to all aspects of life and economy:

  • Engineering
  • Buildings and architecture
  • Textile
  • Mobility
  • Utilities
  • Consumables
  • Food science
  • Business management and new work
  • Social science
  • Civilization & Education
  • Health

The Science Symposiums aims to support C2C as an area of fundamental and applied research. Our goal is to support, encourage and provide a platform for networking, sharing, publishing and nurturing the potential growth of individual scholars across the globe with innovation approach.

The Symposium is hosted by the C2c e.V. as an associated event within the framework of the C2C Congress 2018.
