BSc Business Professor Leads in Research Project Examining Food and Circular Economy in the South West
BSc Business Professor, Steffen Boehm, is leading on a research project exploring the opportunities and challenges for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) food and drink processors in the South West transition into circular economy. Circular economy in this context refers to how businesses can retain and circulate maximum value from resources during use, eliminate avoidable waste, and reuse or recycle unavoidable waste. The research project focuses on bakery and dairy processors, which are two of the largest food industries in the local area.
Professor Steffen Boehm is a lecturer on the BSc Business programme, teaching the second year module, Research for Inquiry. Professor Boehm’s research focuses largely on environmental sustainability.
Professor Boehm rarely uses PowerPoint slides, instead favouring a discursive engagement with students who are expected to take notes during lectures and participate in group activities and class discussions. He works with a range of real-world case studies, many of which are based on his many published journal articles and books.
