Short summary of PhD project
As part of the CUBIC project (Co-Evolution of Business Strategies in material and construction industries and public policies) I am looking at the transition towards a circular economy in Switzerland. We work with industry partners, experts and policy makers in Switzerland to create a shared vision of this transition and to develop a coherent set of policies.
System Dynamics is my Methodology of choice, as I want to understand the causal mechanisms that act as drivers and barriers for the construction material industry. I am especially interested in the feedbacks between business models and public policies, as well as the contribution of System Dynamics to govern this system.
