Reflow: shaping our urban future through a novel approach to circular economy
The research project REFLOW sets out to offer a new approach to circular economy in urban areas. Currently, our urban environments follow a process characterized by a linear product in/waste out model. Such traditional configuration leads cities to consume more than they produce and, consequently, creates an unsustainable amount of waste. In circular and regenerative cities, waste becomes a resource that helps building wealth rather than reducing it. Active citizen involvement and systemic change are needed to re-design products, re-locate production, and re-think urban spaces, which in turn will enact this new form of managing resources.
To ensure that circular economy principles are anchored in citizens’ vision and expectations, the project has as active partners six pilot cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, Milan, Paris, and Vejle. In each of the six pilot cities there are makerspaces where citizens can prototype, develop, and test circular products, software, and business models for their cities. It is the ambition of REFLOW that its results can offer guidelines and tools that other cities can adopt in their transition to becoming circular and regenerative.
REFLOW brings together 27 partners from 10 European countries. REFLOW combines the competences and approaches of very different partners, including universities, grassroots organizations, municipalities, research institutions, designers and developers.
The project is led by Cristiana Parisi, Associate Professor at the Department of Operations Management, Copenhagen Business School (CBS). It received 10 Million € funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme for its 3-year duration, starting June 2019.
