The European Journal of Social Impact and Circular Economy promotes the first scientific Workshop, hoping to discuss:

How Social Impact and Circular Economy meet Digital Transformation?

Date: March 26th, 2020

Using Virtual Platforms.


The growing focus on social issues is going hand in hand with the need to reverse the ongoing climate change.
The link between the two themes is simple. Our planet in its fragility requires alternative economic systems based on tremendous respect for shared resources. At the same time, more and more people remain marginalised, and this is calling on companies to take on growing responsibility for social redistribution.

There is, therefore, a need for companies to develop new models that, while drawing, on the one hand, draw on as few resources as possible, on the other hand, distribute social impact to stakeholders.

The technology sector in its many forms is showing enormous potential to organise, design, adapt and report on change. To this end, we launch a discussion on how social impact and the circular economy meet digital transformation.
