    Objectives

    Today's society is unsustainable. The challenges we face are well known: waste, climate change, lack of water, scarce resources, loss of biodiversity, etc. At the same time, it is recognized the importance of catalysing sustainable economic models and offering opportunities to a growing population.

    In this UC, the concept of Circular Economy and Resource Management is explored in several areas, namely: value creation, the role of technological innovation in adapting to more efficient and efficient production paradigms and the importance of creativity in the design stages of solutions.

    This UC should instil the capacity to identify the problems associated with the Circular Economy, to recognize the importance of adopting integrated management policies, managing to transpose its action in search of solutions in various domains that are an example of innovation and creativity in the resolution of problems.
