Circular economy 2.0

Project learning environment (PLE) is one of the operating methods of Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) and it is based on innovation pedagogy strategies.

PLE is based on problem-solving project work. All the assignments come from companies or RDI-projects and are related to circular economy.

Circular economy 2.0 (Kiertotalous 2.0) is one of the PLEs and it operates under the Circular Business Models research group of TUAS. The students work in small groups often under a student managing director, supported by mentors from the research group. Usually students are recruited to the teams for a longer time but at some cases they can join only for one project. Each student gets tasks based of their individual skills and interests, which they can do either on their own or in the group. Students also meet each other at regular basics in meetings. There work also international students in the Circular economy 2.0.
