The UKRI National Circular Economy Research Hub (CE-Hub) is bringing together industry, academics, policy makers and civic society to deliver a more inclusive, restorative and competitive UK Circular Economy.
Stay up-to-date with latest news from the CE-Hub and the five specialist Circular Economy Centres, including reports, articles, webinars and our exciting events programme.
THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY?
Currently, most of what we consume flows through a linear, ‘take, make, waste’ economy, in which products and materials are made, used, and then thrown away. A Circular Economy, by contrast, focuses on regeneration, restoration, and re-use at all stages of a resource’s life cycle. This allows products, materials, and components to remain in circulation at their highest value for the longest period, and the waste generated by a linear economy is designed out from the start.
The CE-Hub is the coordinating Hub for the NICER Programme, a four-year programme working to provide the evidence base needed to deliver a resilient and restorative Circular Economy for the UK. The Hub works with the five UKRI National Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Research Centres, and brings together academics, industry practitioners, policy makers and civic society to deliver CE research and innovation.
