The Fontys Centre of Expertise Circular Transition (FECT) is the centre of knowledge for the circular economy and the energy transition. We conduct practice-based research into the transition from a linear to a circular economy, and the energy transition. We do not operate in isolation. Instead, we work alongside (regional) businesses, civil-society organisations, government bodies and consumer (groups). Our aim is to create new collaborative partnerships in which circularity can flourish, by working together, sharing and applying knowledge.
