About us

This post will be situated with the UCL Plastic Waste Innovation Hub, and is part of the UKRI NICER Centre for Circular Metals, funded by NERC, with research being conducted at Brunel University, the University of Warwick and UCL. Over 4 years, the Centre aims to accelerate the transition from the current largely take-make-waste linear metals economy to full metal circulation by conducting high quality research and innovation through a systems approach. Across the three universities, projects will include a macro-economic analysis of metal flow; the development of circular product design principles, circular business models and circular supply chain strategies to facilitate the transition to full metal circulation; the development of circular alloys and circular manufacturing technologies to enable the transition to full metal circulation; and engagement with the wider academic and industrial communities, policy makers and the ge! neral pub lic to deliver the widest possible impact of full metal circulation, focusing on barriers and enablers to increasing electronics repair.
