The research will play a relevant role in the tasks that the Chair for the Transformation of the Economic Model of the University of Valencia will launch in the coming months, in the final stretch of 2020. In this sense, the director of the Chair, Francisco Hernández , has recalled that within the framework of the activities programmed and approved jointly with the Finance and Economic Model Department, two studies have been planned. One of them is a work on the opportunities that the circular economy represents in the face of the recovery of those productive sectors most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in the Valencian Community. In the second of the studies, the scientific team of the Chair will carry out an analysis on the current situation and the potential of the circular economy at the municipal level in the valencian region.

In both cases, it is about analyzing the possibilities that the circular economy can bring to the economy of the Region at present and in the future.
