C-Voucher - Regional Camps for challenges definition (circular economy for European SMEs)


Circularize Value Chains across European Regional Innovation Strategies

Regional Camps

C-VoUCHER is an EU funded project that combines design and technology in order to help SMEs take part in Circular Economy. The goal is to develop new, cross-sectorial value chains across the EU by supporting SMEs on the move away from linear value chains (cradle to waste) towards circular models (cradle to cradle). In this project, we work with European clusters from Denmark, Sweden, Poland, France, Spain and Romania within the following five industries: manufacturing, agro-food, health, textile and maritime industries 

In order to get to know the challenges SMEs meet when it comes to sustainability and circularity, each of the clusters will organize two industry-specific “camps”. The first group of camps will be held in June and July 2018 (see dates and locations below) and they will use a workshop-style approach to get input from SMEs about their views on the challenges and barriers they face in adopting circular models.
