To deepen the knowledge of the functioning of circular systems from the point of view of engineering sciences and economics. The idea is to present several case studies concerning the circular economy and the constraints faced by the companies. The expected gains as well as the perverse negative impacts on companies will be discussed.


1) Introduction: presentation of global challenge cases and eco-circular scenario?
2) The economy of durable goods:
The analysis of durable good will look at the intertemporal problem that the circularity introduces and well as the quality issue and its impact on profits. The discussion of the ownership model will be discussed as well. A model of operational research may be used for illustration.
3) Cartography of logistic chains in different sectors with the analysis of competition between actors
4) LCA of circular goods
5) Circular business model
6) Game on circular strategy - role to be taken in the decision to be made, modeling of the value chains to be made
7) The brakes to circular innovation with a concept of capturing the value. Enablers and Accelerators
8) Circular rebound effect
9) Empirical analysis of willingness to pay for circular goods
We will do an experimental design for a particular product and try to run an econometric analysis to evaluate the profitability of circular product
10) Circular indicators
