Call for a Master’s Thesis

A text mining-based analysis of circular economy strategies in the automotive and packaging industries
Background:
Text mining methods provide researchers with a quantitative alternative to the established qualitative analysis of natural language documents. The continuously evolving set of methods allows for increasingly extensive and complex analyses that shed light on underlying topics, their associations and similarities.

Objective:
The objective of this thesis is to identify circular economy-oriented strategies and the current state of topics pursued by companies in the automotive and the packaging sector by use of text mining methods. Specifically, interrelations and similarities between sustainability management approaches (e.g., triple-bottom-line, Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development) and circularity strategies (e.g. reuse, remanufacturing, recycling, …(9-R-strategies) shall be analysed. The analysis will utilise secondary data from companies (i.e., sustainability reports and databases) and shall contribute to a deeper understanding of the state of implementation of the concept of a circular economy and its role in achieving the goal of sustainable development.

Method:
Literature analysis based on vector space modelling

Requirements:
Basic skills in python/R
Experience with text mining methods preferred

Contact:
Prof. Rupert Baumgartner; rupert.baumgartner-klammeraffe-uni-graz-punkt-at

Application: Until June 30, 2019
Funding is available for this thesis.
