Module

Technology and Analytics for a Circular Economy

Module description

In this module you will explore the relationship between emerging technologies and circular innovation. You will explore the relationship between social, physical, and cyber technologies and what this might mean to the development of the circular economy. You will then explore how this can be applied to an organisation to enrich insight and create a shift towards circularity. You will look at the ways in which societies, governments, and organisations can use data to better measure negative and positive externalities. By engaging in early models of the circular economy you will be able to form a picture of current stocks, their flows and exchange. Utilising diagnostic tools, you will be able to better measure value across a range of circular economy initiatives and better spot, evaluate and prioritise opportunities within the overall system.
