URBAN CENTRES of so-called peripheral regions in the Central Europe widely lack innovation and business development spirit due to their limited access to global innovation processes and cooperation partners. Various Circular economy models offer options for the sustainable and resource-efficient development of cities and municipalities and for pooling innovation, new technologies, services, solutions and business models. In order to help cities overcome those challenges, we created CITYCIRCLE.

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.

Project Partners

10 Partners, 6 Countries, 1 Cityrcle

  • 1 Advanced CE knowledge-base, including CE maturity index
  • 1 Transnational market place for critical raw materials implemented
  • 6 Circular economy hubs implemented1 Transnational learning platform established
