Blockchain Technology and the Implementation of Circular Economy within Firm Inter-organisational Relations

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch


This paper investigates the implications of the design, development and use of a bockchain technology for the implementation of circular economy within interorganisational relations. It does so by studying the performative effects of blockchain technology on the way circular economy, a vague and ambiguous concept, is defined and implemented. This study relies on the data collected within a large European project aimed at implementing circular economy at urban level. This paper adopts the performativity theoretical approach to illustrate the features of blockchain technology that influence the definition and implementation of circular economy within cities.
