A collective research project formulated by the University-Business Network European Union -Latin America and The Caribbean (RedUE ALCUE), the Foundation for the Strategic Analysis and Development of Small and Medium Enterprises (FAEDPYME), and the Union of Universities of Latin America and the Caribbean (UDUAL) wants to explore on the links established by universities with the productive sectors in the field of the circular economy and sustainable development. This collective research project is part of advancing the achievement of the SDGs proposed in the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
To this end, we launch this invitation, open to the universities in the bi-regional space of Latin America, the Caribbean and the European Union (EULAC), so that its members can present papers documenting the activities and policies they develop concerning this topic.
We will allow having a source of essential knowledge of collective learning so that recent experiences on the subject can be analyzed and strategies to enhance these contributions of the universities of the EULAC space to the challenge of advancing towards modes of sustainable development be considered.
The call is addressed both to those responsible for the areas of the universities that are in charge of promoting actions with the productive actors related to the circular economy, as well as to the researchers who work on this subject in its different aspects. Likewise, it is interesting to know the initiatives and policies that universities develop within them, such as educational programs or consumption and waste management policies by their communities.
Considering the diversity present in the EULAC space, in this call, works are expected to report the picture of the set of actions, especially of an innovative nature, that the university develops on the subject of the circular economy. Proposals from specific areas will also be welcome; collaborations with local communities or companies on issues such as solid waste management, energy transition, responsible water management, or others are of interest to this project. Then, too, they point to solutions for systemic types with other actors beyond the capacities of the universities.
