Funding circular economy projects - Online Workshop

From 13 June 2023 10:00 until 13 June 2023 12:00
At Online
Categories: Projects' events
High upfront investment costs are a recurring challenge for many circular economy initiatives. Through this workshop, the BRINC project addresses this issue by providing an overview of different funding sources for circular economy innovations (public programmes, private investments and green loans), and by informing project promoters on how to strategically access such funding.

What type of funds are available for your circular economy initiative?
Which criteria are to be filled to access funding?
How to build a business case for your circular innovation?

Find the answers to these questions by joining us online on the 13th of June.

About the BRINC project: The COSME co-funded BRINC project will unlock the potential of cross-border Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) by acting as an Innovation Procurement Broker and establishing a European Hub for PPI in a circular economy. The project aims to facilitate the identification of public innovation needs, conduct market consultations to identify market capabilities and potential solutions, and help public buyers tap into the innovative capacity of SMEs.
