Urban centres of peripheral regions in central Europe widely lack an innovation and business development spirit due to their limited access to global innovation processes and cooperation partners. Circular economy models offer options for their sustainable and resource-efficient development and for pooling innovation, new technologies, services, solutions and business models.
The CITYCIRCLE project will facilitate innovation and technology transfer, and improve services and business models in peripheral cities. By providing these with tools and knowledge linked to the circular economy, the project will enable a new generation of innovative solutions in their urban ecosystems in a long-run. A full circular economy package for cities will deploy organizational structures, knowledge and tools, transnational value chains and present visible benefits to their citizens.
More information will follow soon.
