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 facilitated innovation and technology transfer and improved services and business models in peripheral cities. By providing these with tools and knowledge linked to the circular economy, the project enabled a new generation of innovative solutions in their urban ecosystems in a long-run. A full circular economy package for cities deployed organizational structures, knowledge and tools, transnational value chains and presented visible benefits to their citizens.

The project resulted in:

  • Establishment of HUB/accelerators of circular economy in participating cities that will connect key stakeholders in circular economy (companies, public administration, universities, citizens)
  • Enabling of an innovation process by educating stakeholders and providing tools for management of an efficient Ccircular economy process
  • Set up of a transnational value chain and network for key materials - byproducts, directed by a joint strategy for circular economy

Main outputs of the project are:

  • 1 Transnational market place for critical raw materials implemented
  • 5 Circular economy hubs implemented Transnational learning platform established
  • 5 CE pilot implementations
  • 5 Capacity building training for hub/accelerator managers and staff
    members and relevant stakeholders
  • 5 Circular economy strategies agreed upon by the stakeholder groups
    in each target region
  • 1 Transnational joint CE strategy and value chains defined
  • 3 Transnational CECOMs implemented

CIRCULAR ECONOMY FAQ

In order to better understand what we are trying to achieve with CITYCIRCLE it is vital that we define the basic concepts and terms of Circular Economy.

We have thus created a FAQ page, that we will constantly expand in order to give our users the answers to the basic questions on Circular Economy.
