The TRTP, developed by UT researchers, is a program focused on circular economy. It aims to improve regional resources management while mitigating environmental impacts. With the Science Diplomacy Fund, the researchers will apply TRTP in China.

The Science Diplomacy Fund aims to fund scientific activities that can positively contribute to improving diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and partner countries. These activities include workshops and exchanges with researchers and stakeholders across the world.
