Get Involved

The Copenhagen Business School’s research in the REFLOW Project contributes to the development of Business and Design Co-Creation towards creating circular and regenerative cities. We aim to identify the best circular economy practices that support collaborative and co-created citizen observation. We employ design thinking and apply an iterative approach to co-creation activities within the project’s six pilot cities. Our research objectives look to define key performance indicators to assess circular economy practices, and to conduct an economic assessment of the social and environmental impact of the circular economy practices within the pilots. 

We are eager to collaborate with motivated researchers and students. If you are interested in getting involved with our research and work at CBS, we look forward to hearing from you. 

If you are a researcher and are interested in collaborating with the Department of Operations Management at the Copenhagen Business School, contact us to discuss opportunities. 

If you are a student with a research interest in the circular economy, find more information and how to apply below or contact us if you have further questions.
