Who we are and what we do

CECE is Research Center for Sustainable Circular Economy based at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and it brings together multidisciplinary research on sustainable circular economy, conducted in cooperation with Finnish and international research units.

Researchers from Research Center for Sustainable Circular Economy are a multidisciplinary group of UEF researchers and professors from Business School, Law School, and Geographical and Historical Studies​.

The Research Center produces knowledge on the circular economy as an economic, social and cultural transformation. Our projects explore circular economy solutions for plastics and microplastics, critical raw materials, sustainability change for businesses, cities and society, and social entrepreneurship.
