University of Helsinki and Aalto University


University of Helsinki researchers’ science-based solutions include (1) a sustainable, waste-based fungal bioconversion method for bioethanol production; (2) organic waste as a raw material for biodegradable products; (3) understanding the drivers of and barriers to sustainability transition and the future prospects of a circular bioeconomy; (4) a teacher education course, “Circular economy inventions in schools”.

Aalto researchers have achieved new results from: 1) the polycentric governance of large complex circular economy systems drawn from a study in Finland, the US and Spain; 2) the circular economy of batteries; 3) design for disassembly in wood construction to uphold the value of material in circulation for longer; 4) circular designs for textiles.
