Graduate Research on Extended Producer Responsibility

on 14 December 2019

Jurriaan Vink joined Copper8 in mid-November as a graduate trainee. In the coming months, he will delve into the subject of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).

The European Circular Economy Package and the Dutch Government-wide Programme for a Circular Economy both mention EPR as an important way to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. Jurriaan will investigate how EPR can contribute to the circular economy – what forms of EPR are most and least effective, and how can an EPR system be introduced.

Jurriaan will approach this subject from his perspective as a graduate in Philosophy (he has a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Groningen) and in Engineering and Policy Analysis (he is now completing his studies at TU Delft).
