Digit4Circularity is part of the Inspire Programme funded by EIT Food. In this summer school, the topic will be formed around establishing solutions that allow to open up new paths in the food value chains and thus to allow for a better valorisation and more efficient use of resources.

The circular economy, in which growth is gradually decoupled from the consumption of finite resources, offers a response to the grand challenges of the Food Systems. Its principles are to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.

Programme Structure

Digital solutions will be taught through case studies and successful examples related to circular business models based on connectivity and data gathering, sharing and analysis, with the aim of maximising Food system value and producing better products and services.

After successfully attending Digit4Circularity, students will be able to:

  • Understand the guiding principles of the circular economy and relate it to neighboring concepts

  • Investigate what it takes to create products that are easy to repair, refurbish, remanufacture, repurpose, recycle, or recover, using as enabler the main digital technologies available (e.g. from IoT to AI)

  • Explain drivers and barriers for businesses to implement circular business models and digital platforms to cooperate and share data towards a circular approach

  • Gauge the macro-systemic effects of the transition towards a circular economy
  • Critically reflect upon the circular economy impact on the economic, environmental, and social side
