Scotland’s centre for circular economy expertise
The University of Edinburgh is a leading hub for circular knowledge and innovation, through the Circular Economy Centre and the Edinburgh Earth Initiative.
We work together with businesses and other organisations to accelerate the transition to a circular economy by providing access to world-leading research, education and innovation support.
The Centre for Adapting to Changing Environments brings together diverse expertise to address how populations can adapt effectively to our changing environment. Both natural and human induced changes are altering our environment at an unprecedented rate and are having profound effects on our planet, its biodiversity, our health, and our ability to live in a sustainable and equitable way.
The Science for Sustainability Hub acts as a portal to build engagement across research, industry, government and civil society to build a new vision for a sustainable future. It seeks to create collaborations to accelerate its mission to create an equitable, inclusive and sustainable for our planet. Their activities are underpinned by a strong commitment to ethical and socially responsible research, founded on Edinburgh's long-standing strengths in social sciences scholarship.
