Center for Circular Economy© CCE
With the founding of the Center for Circular Economy - abbreviated CCE - RWTH Aachen University bundles the competences of all nine faculties in the field of circular economy.
The CCE is a platform for interdisciplinary cooperation in the field of recycling materials such as metals, minerals, textiles, plastics, water and carbon. Institutes for social affairs, business, science and digitalization are also integrated here. Synergies within the university are to be exploited. Initial large-scale projects aim to minimize waste, maximize the value of recycled materials, help shape political frameworks and enable their acceptance in society. This is done on a regional, national and international level, including teaching that is to be developed in a correspondingly targeted manner.
The junior professorship of Reuse in Architecture represents the faculty of architecture in this network.
