Assoc. Prof. Viktor Prokop, University of Pardubice, Czech Republic

Background and motivation:

In response to recent changes in business innovation strategies, interest in Business Model Innovation (BMI) has increased dramatically. Specifically, two complementary roles for business models in strengthening innovations have been identified, namely their crucial role in commercializing innovations and their source of future value as well as a powerful competitive tool. In addition, BMI has an important role in achieving more resource effective economic ecosystems. Indeed, synergies between BMI and circular economy are currently explored in newly defined integrated frameworks. This special issue aims to establish conceptual models, investigate new business model concepts for circular economy, and explore the potential for empirical contributions.
