Project synergies: CircPro

PPI2Innovate project partners from Italy - Regione Piemonte and University of Torino, also thanks to the experience acquired through PPI2Innovate project participation- joined a new EU co-funded project, named "CircPro - Smart Circular Procurement". 

"Public procurement accounts for a large proportion of European consumption (nearly 20% of EU GDP). Public procurement has a major role to play in the transition towards a Circular Economy. It is important and efficient to make the right choices early on in the product creation process, so that materials and components are suitable, at end-of-life, for repair or refurbishment and re-use, thus helping to close the materials loop.
Project CircPro aims to promote the transition to a more Circular Economy related national and regional decision making by increasing the implementation of the Circular Procurement. "
