Implementing Industrial Symbiosis Incentives: an Applied Assessment Framework for Risk Mitigation
Industrial symbiosis (IS) is a business model that proposes symbiotic exchanges, allowing the flow of resources, wastes, and utilities between companies. In recent years, IS initiatives have been
Urban symbiosis: A new paradigm in the shift towards post-carbon cities
The paper uses the example of urban waste water systems to sketch strategies to develop symbiosis between urban infrastructures and analyses barriers in developing urban symbiosis and sketches strategies how to deal with them.
Industrial Symbiosis: A Sectoral Analysis on Enablers and Barriers
Industrial Symbiosis (IS) around the world in the last 20 years had been characterized through an extensive analysis of scientific papers on the IS emerging process, with a special focus on its early
Integrating Functions for a Sustainable Urban System: A Review of Multifunctional Land Use and Circular Urban Metabolism

Transnational system building across geopolitical shifts : The Danube-Oder-Elbe Canal, 1901-2015
We study the politics of water infrastructure through the Large Technical Systems (LTS) literature, which examines human agency in the dynamics of complex sociotechnical systems. We take into account
Organising urban symbiosis projects
Urban symbiosis is a strategy to create a more efficient metabolism of cities. However, urban symbiosis requires the integration of different systems, which is hard to achieve. Actors involved in
