Circular Economy: Exciting opportunity to participate in Students as Change Agents programme at the University of Edinburgh 

Posted: 29th October 2020

Is your organisation grappling with a challenge in the circular economy?

The University of Edinburgh is seeking expressions of interest from organisations in the Edinburgh city region to participate in a unique programme that offers partners the opportunity to benefit from an innovative approach to problem solving. Students as Change Agents is a well-established programme that brings students and external partners together to tackle a real-life challenge, generate fresh thinking and deliver a positive social impact.

As part of the University’s ambition to become a circular institution a hub for circular economy research expertise in Scotland, it is offering a private, public or third sector organisation the chance to gain new insights and ideas by posing a circular economy challenge to participating students.

The University will support the challenge partner throughout the programme, which starts early in the New Year and runs for approximately 2-3 months. No financial contribution is required and total time commitment is estimated to be approximately 15 hours in total. 

If you are interested in finding out more or want to express interest in participating, please contact lucy.stanfield@ei.ed.ac.uk by 5pm on Tuesday 10th November.
