In February, the Tecnológico de Monterrey's EGADE Business School was honored by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation for its outstanding participation with the greatest number of participants worldwide at the 2014 Disruptive Innovation Festival held October 20-November 14 by the U.K. foundation. The School was presented with a gift of a 3D Ultimate Original printer.

Over the course of the Festival, the EGADE Business School offered the best presentations each week at a weekly meeting where innovative ideas were debated with the aim of adapting them to developing countries. "With this event, the EGADE Business School continues to put forward circular economy topics and related issues that are currently having a huge impact on Europe, mainly in redesigning companies to compete in industrial environments that require being much more sustainable than in the previous century," Dr. Scheel stated.
