Ever since we started research in this field an increasing interest in the theme of “New Business Models’ can be observed. Through various activities, we are able to make the connection between new and innovative ideas regarding sustainability and lately circularity leading to transformation in practice. Central is developing a new generation of business models in all possible sectors that foster sustainability and a circular economy. In recent years, a substantial number of events have taken place. Most of these activities were in Dutch. For more information see the Dutch sitehere.

Seminar “The City as a Businessmodel”
4th of October 2018
Nijmegen School of Management,
Radboud University, Nijmegen (NL)
On October 4, 2018, the Nijmegen School of Management (Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands) will host a small-scale seminar, ‘The City as a Business Model’, as part of the Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018 activities. The essence of this seminar is how to address the challenges of integrating sustainability, circularity, and social inclusivity in the urban environment. The focus will be on concepts that generate multiple values for various stakeholders and thus offer the foundation for creating a sustainable and inclusive urban circular economy. The target audience of the seminar is professionals in the public and private sector across Europe who are actively working on projects. During the day, a number of small-scale sessions will be scheduled in which projects will be presented and discussed. In addition, a number of sessions will be organised on generic themes such as ‘the city as a data-mine’ or ‘circular city labs’. The program is complemented by some keynotes. As a whole the seminar would like to offer a platform to meet colleagues and exchange information and experiences derived from best practices.
