Research and education institutions, startups, and businesses together for transitioning to a circular economy for urban transformation

ASP director Alessandra Oppio spoke at the launch event of the CircularCity Innovation Lab, where trends and challenges of urban circularity were presented, thanks to the participation and contribution of experts and industry leaders.

Deloitte CircularCity Innovation Lab aims to identify the most promising start-up and scale-up solutions in four areas: material cycle, mobility, resources and water cycle.

Focusing on innovation and sustainability, and fostering collaboration between research and education institutions, startups, and businesses to accelerate the transition of cities towards a circular economy, is what emerged at the presentation event.

Urban regeneration is a focal point for the Alta Scuola Politecnica, as we strive not only for the revitalization of cities but also for the enhancement of their economic and social fabric.

As highlighted by Alessandra Oppio, several ASP multidisciplinary projects deal with cities and the circular economy and are carried out by our students in synergy with public institutions, research organizations and companies, as by collaborating, sharing knowledge, and fostering a culture of sustainable innovation, we can build cities that thrive in a circular economy.

We encourage our students to provide concrete and innovative solutions that consider the environmental and societal implications of their ideas. It is crucial that our innovations have a positive impact on both the environment and society as a whole.
