Input-Output Analysis for Circular Economy research: what is to be done? with Dr. José Bruno Fevereiro
The transition to a circular economy involves economy-wide changes affecting a large variety of economic sectors and actors, across complex global supply chains. Multiregional input−output (MRIO) analysis provides a useful approach for assessing this transition, tracking material flows across increasingly fragmented international supply chains. However, MRIO data is often reported at a very aggregated level; as such, compared to other environmental applications, the adoption of IO in circular economy research has been relatively scarce so far. In this talk, we will first provide a classification of how MRIO analysis has been adopted in circular economy research; open challenges will be highlighted, along with a research agenda and a research plan which will be developed within the JUST2CE project.
