Regions in Context III: Principles of circular economics in regional management leading to increased efficiency of systems
Modern challenges of economic science, reflecting the current needs of a changing society, provide stimuli for researchers and change the discourse of perception of economic development from linear to circular. Growth theories are being replaced by sustainability theories and the resulting incentives to approach innovative solu-tions both in the theoretical level and in practical applications. This scientific mo-nograph, which falls into the hands of the reader, brings new perspectives on clas-sical industries or changes in economic governance mechanisms that reflect the principles of circularity.
The authors of the individual chapters try to present in a readable form both the theory of circular economics in various industries and the current state of know-ledge in the application of circular economics in practice or in case studies. The team of the Faculty of Economics of the University of South Bohemia in České Bu-dějovice cooperates on the topic of circular economics with experts from different fields, but also from different generations, and it is this diversity of views on one topic that makes this book very attractive and I believe that further research and cooperation.
