We use various tools and methods to help you understand how resources, products, and waste are managed within your company and throughout your supply chain. These insights enable you to manage resources more sustainably. Adopting circular thinking and developing competencies for sustainable business transformation can create a new company culture. This, in turn, encourages key actors in the supply chain to actively contribute to the formation of sustainable supply chains.
We support the development, uptake, and marketability of sustainable products, services, processes, and solutions. Our services include helping startups prepare proposals and participate in business innovation competitions for fundraising and awards. We aim to create synergies among business, technology, and research partners.
We participate in national and international research projects, including strategic research for EU projects focused on Research & Innovation Actions. Our work packages cover circularity, impact assessment, and social sciences and humanities (SSH), enabling the exploration and improvement of new technologies and methods. The aim is to produce valuable insights and replicable findings with regards to social, environmental and economic activities, as well as to contribute to knowledge dissemination around circularity performance.
We are supporting Hubs4Circularity as part of the Horizon Europe Programme to establish a European Community of Practice. Our goal is to provide advice to the consortium and support project activities to promote circularity opportunities throughout Europe.Learn More
