Circularity and Sustainability

The Netherlands aims to have a circular economy by 2050. The architecture, engineering and construction industry plays a pivotal part in achieving this goal. The Circularity & Sustainability DAT aspires to accelerate the transition to a more circular and sustainable construction environment.

The Netherlands aims to have a circular economy by 2050. The architecture, engineering and construction industry plays a pivotal part in achieving this goal. The Circularity & Sustainability DAT aspires to accelerate the transition to a more circular and sustainable construction environment.

While the DAT is newly formed, several of its members are also involved with the former BTIC. Within this set-up, they have written a program on design for circular building environments and have helped secure research funding. Recognizing and identifying the different areas of expertise within the 4TUs will, furthermore, be beneficial for creating a more efficient collaboration and creating opportunities through new joint research projects. The collaboration of different parties on sustainability and circularity themes provides input for strategic agendas, which in turn help accelerate the needed transition to circularity.
