Vincent Gruis is professor of Housing Management at Delft University of Technology. His research addresses the question of how landlords, developers, investors, governments and tenants can adapt their housing to societal challenges. He currently focusses on how to implement principles of a circular economy in the management and redevelopment of the housing stock. After a (necessary) emphasis on increasing the energy efficiency to reduce carbon emissions, creating a circular built environment is the next sustainability challenge. To help achieve this, Vincent works together with industry partners, including housing associations from the Amsterdam region, to create circular building strategies and components.
