Work begins on CE defence project

A project to boost the European defence sector’s use of circular economy (CE) principles has been launched.

The aim is to establish a roadmap to transpose the CE concept into the sector, with a study scheduled to be finalised by the end of October.

The EU Council’s inter-governmental European Defence Agency (EDA) kicked off the scheme, in partnership with the Cambridge Judge Business School.

The EDA expects the initial assessment to highlight the potential benefits and challenges of applying the European Commission’s CE package to the defence sector.

Senior faculty in management practice and academic director of the executive MBA programme at the business school, Dr Khaled Soufani (pictured), is leading the programme.

The project team includes Dr Mark Esposito and Dr Terence Tse, both visiting fellows at the school who have worked with Dr Soufani on several CE studies and articles.

Dr Soufani said: “We are delighted about the opportunity the CE research initiative has to work with the EDA to explore ways this important concept can apply to the defence sector. We look forward to seeing how CE principles can make a real impact in this area.”
