IMIM Webinar on Transitions and experiments: Industrial ecosystems
Industrial ecology, as one the main schools of thoughts behind circular economy, offer some promising ways to confront the challenge of sustainability problems in traditional industrial production systems which work under linear production routines. The overarching principle of industrial ecology thinking is based on achieving the symbiotic resource exchanges among the actors of industrial production systems which can evolve into industrial ecosystems with an analogy to mimic the natural ecosystems. In this talk, I will present my recent scientific work which advances the understanding of industrial ecology-inspired transitions by conceptually framing and empirically analysing the experimentation with industrial ecosystem initiatives at local and regional development scales.
Dr Ebru Susur currently works as Assistant Professor in Innovation Studies at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Previously, she worked as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Innovation Studies at Utrecht University and a Postdoctoral Researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Dr Susur received her PhD. Degrees in Industrial Management from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and in Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering from Politecnico di Milano. Her research interests are centred on transitions, experimentation, and business models for sustainability, industrial ecology, circular economy, and digitalisation. She explores and works with different theoretical and methodological perspectives in the pursuit of understanding and explaining complex phenomena. Dr Susur is also actively engaged in coordination of International Master in Industrial Management (IMIM) Programme for which she acts as the Master’s Thesis Coordinator.
