ACR+ is part of a consortium working for ESPON (European Territorial Observatory Network, aiming to inspire policy making with territorial evidence) on a new study named CIRCTER — Circular Economy and Territorial Consequence.

Project co-funded by the European Commission under the EPSON 2020 Cooperation Programme, 2017 - 2019.


The Interim Report from 23 October 2018 is available online. It showcases the results achieved to date within the different research tasks in the project. The report provides a territorial definition of a circular economy and an overview of the main relevant European policies. With a particular attention given to the territorial dimension of a circular economy, it details the regional data collected and produced by the project for European NUTS2 regions and provides summarised information about the 6 case studies. More in-depth information is provided in the report’s annexes.

There is a genuine understanding that intertwined socio-economic and environmental phenomena, along-side effective communication of complex challenges, are some of the essential enablers of sound and effective policies suggested in this report.
