Eva Bartekova is a project manager at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and an affiliated researcher at UNU-MERIT. She holds a PhD in Innovation, Economics and Governnance for Development from Maastricht University, a MSc in Finance from University of London, and a BA in International Economics and Management from Bocconi University.

Her research interests lie at the intersection of economics of innovation and technology, resource and energy economics. In particular, Eva's PhD dissertation examined the interconnections between climate change mitigation, energy and minerals, in an attempt to uncover the coordination challenges within the decentralised bottom-up climate change mitigation architecture of the Paris Agreement (COP21). At present, her primary research revolves around circular economy and sustainable resource use. She has been involved in the Sino-European Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency (SINCERE) project, where she has co-authored the comparative analysis on circular economy policies across China and Europe, and the co-evolution analysis of the eco-cement innovation trajectory. She now manages the project on circular economy opportunity for China and its cities within the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Prior to her academic experience, she acquired extensive professional experience in financial markets and profound expertise in equity indices and passive investment products, at both analyst and managerial levels.
