In order to bring change, knowledge can be shared and developed into different types of activities and projects. Focus can be placed on tackling legislation, problem solving, product and process design, innovation and strategic planning. All projects can be co-created with one of our international partners.

Tailor made research can be applied to investigate long term opportunities and develop appropriate circular indicators.
Workshops & Educational material

Case Studies will be developed, as well as, discussion foruns and workshops to demonstrate the benefits and opportunities of the new circular economy. Material can be produced for events articles and tailored made publications.
