Circular Economy Skills Demand in Scottish Manufacturing Sector

Posted: 21st May 2018

Skills Development Scotland, in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, are currently undertaking a research project on ‘Circular Economy Skills Demand in Scottish Manufacturing’. An online survey and a series of focus groups aim to assess the future skills requirements for circular economy activity within the Scottish manufacturing sector (e.g. engineering, textiles, construction, energy).

To identify how businesses effectively integrate the circular economy concept into their business models and processes and what skills are required, manufacturing companies are invited to complete the online survey which is available until 19 May and/or register for a breakfast meeting to share views:
