The Sustainable Circular Economy – new opportunities for raw materials, chemicals and water?
On Tuesday 15th March, Cefic, ERRIN and East North Finland will organise the Workshop Sustainable Circular Economy – new opportunities for raw materials, chemicals and water?
Raw materials, chemicals and water are often regarded as traditional mature sectors but increased interest in the circular economy (linked to Europe’s recently published Circular Economy Strategy) opens up new thinking and new business models based on new innovative approaches. What new opportunities are available for these industries and how can regions support innovation and new sectors of competitive industries? How can regions enhance collaboration within and between the sectors? How will Smart Specialisation Strategies encourage collaboration between regions? This workshop will seek to explore new opportunities in chemicals, water and raw materials with a focus on regional engagement and interregional collaboration.
