Circular Economy has become one of the main concepts in the EU industrial development as most of the EU industrial value chains depend on natural resources. Closing the loop in the different stages of industrial value chains is the core while developing resource efficiency. Focus on the circular industrial economy is crucial for the regions rich in raw materials. Industrial modernisation, digitalisation and Industry 4.0 give the tools for developing industrial circular economy solutions.
The European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, organises the EU Clusters Talk “On the way to sustainability: Raw Materials & Circular Economy” on 5 April 2023, 8:30 – 9:45 CET, to learn about the new Critical Raw Materials Act, think about responsible extraction and valorisation of materials, and discuss existing circular approaches and good practices.
In addition to the EU Clusters Talk, the European Cluster Collaboration Platform in partnership with East & North Finland and MINE.THE.GAP invites to a Clusters meet Regions workshop and matchmaking on 25-27 April 2023 in Kittilä, Lapland, Finland on this topic. This EU Clusters Talk offers the possibility to initiate the discussions that will be continued in Finland.
SThis event is part of bi-weekly online meetings brought to the cluster community by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform. They offer up-to-date insights into the latest industrial policies and clusters’ involvement, projects, and best practices, the latest ECCP news, and funding opportunities. The EU Clusters Talks are a space to exchange knowledge and to discuss cluster-relevant topics, which will change with every meeting.
Prior registration to this event is compulsory before 5 April 2023, 7:30 CET.Visit Event Website Add to my calendar
