Circular Built Environment (CBE) has a living lab approach, conducting live scale projects and experiments in cooperation between researchers & educators, public sector, private sector and society.

Circularity is a transdisciplinary and systemic approach, concerning the different scale levels from city to building, component and material. Here, social, technological, environmental and economic aspects are of major importance as well as stakeholders, processes and design.
