With the Resources & Circularity Scholarship DSM will offer three scholarships to young leaders around the world, who are working to further the transition from a linear to a circular and/or bio-based economy.

The scholarship focuses on DSM’s purpose-driven domain, Resources & Circularity. DSM’s ambition is to safeguard the future availability of natural resources, and to unlock more value from the limited resources that are available. In order to reach this two-fold goal, DSM focuses on five circularity drivers to design and manufacture its solutions:

  • Reduce the use of critical resources
  • Replace scarce, hazardous and potentially harmful resources with renewable and safer alternatives
  • Extend the lifetime of products
  • Design for recyclability
  • Recover waste streams
