    “Value Networks based on the Circular Economy”

    The 3rd Global Supply Chain Research Forum will take place on May 29-30 in Zaragoza, Spain. This forum will encompass two events: the Research Fest on May 29, where final research projects will be presented, covering a range of topics focused on various supply chain aspects; and the Research Panel Discussion on May 30, where companies and researchers will have an opportunity for networking and discussing the latest research trends in logistics and supply chain management applied to real life success cases.

    During this event the MIT Zaragoza Master of Engineering in Logistics & Supply Chain Management class of 2017, will present their final research to an audience of colleagues, faculty, corporate partners and esteemed jury members.

    This year’s forum will focus on Value Networks based on the Circular Economy. The EU has recognized that “existing trends in resource efficiency are not sufficient to reduce the material intensity of our economy”. The concept of circular economy requires new business models, by shifting from the standard “take, make and dispose” approach to the new economic paradigm of “reduce, reuse and recycle”.
