Saxony is unique when it comes to research and growth in the fields of materials and production engineering as well as process and recycling technology. This expertise, combined with support from funding measures for structural change, will also benefit Lusatia. In the CircEcon – Green Circular Economy research cluster, TU Dresden, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, TU Chemnitz and Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences will work together to develop groundbreaking solutions for the challenges of the circular economy and to strengthen the competitiveness in Lusatia. The circular economy is a key factor in the sustainable transformation of industry and society.
With the constituent meeting of the Steering Committee for CircEcon on August 16, the Rectors of TU Dresden, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, TU Chemnitz and Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences took the decisive step to set the course for the sustainable development of the region with a joint scientific facility. The planned location for the research center is the Schwarze Pumpe industrial park. The federal and state governments will fund the project with EUR 108 million.
