Hello, I am Pasquale Marcello Falcone and this is my personal webpage.

I am a Lecturer of Economic Policy at the Department of Business and Economics – University of Naples “Parthenope” (Italy).

I received my PhD in Economics (2014) at University of Foggia (Italy) and a MSc in Economics at University of Leicester (UK). My research interests span from Environmental Economics and Sustainable Development to sustainability transition theory. Recently, I’m exploring which social aspects are worth considering, together with the key phases of design, production, marketing and consumption of bio-based products from the perspective of circular bio-economy.
