Urban Circular Economy Project: A great opportunity for student and researcher’s mobility

In addition to the scientific collaboration with joint research activities, publications, meetings and visits, organization of joint events, an extended plan for exchange and mobility for students (Master and Doctorate) has been activated. The scope is to establish a lasting relationship among partner institutions, with positive repercussions for the continuation of the project in the future. About 10 young researchers have been involved in these mobility activities till now:

a PhD student from Geosciences University (Beijing) is carrying out a research period at the Parthenope University on the development of the digital calculator to measure the progress of urban circular economy strategies (Parthenope scholarship, September 2019-September 2020)

a PhD student from Sichuan Agricultural University (Ya’an), is conducting a research period at the Parthenope University on the environmental implications of urban circular practices (China Scholarship Council Scholarship, CSC, September 2019-September 2020)
