Circular Economy Collaboration – Operational EIT portfolio

The Cross-KIC project around the circular economy gives an operational portfolio overview of the EIT community efforts in the Circular Economy Framework. The project also aims to strengthen relationships with civil society and institutional partners engaged in the transition towards a circular economy.

The Cross-KIC project around the circular economy gives an operational portfolio overview of the EIT community efforts in the Circular Economy Framework. Besides tracking the existing activities and recognising the strategies to undertake in the years to come, the project also aims to strengthen relationships with civil society and institutional partners engaged in the transition towards a circular economy.

More in detail, this xKIC collaboration aims to establish debates among the different EIT KICs on how to articulate the internal collaboration, on how to develop a joint offer and increase the visibility of the KICs on the topic of Circular Economy.

The xKIC launched a call along 2020, that was won by the Danish Technical University, to track the efforts of the EIT community in terms of Circular Economy. This analysis has led to a strategic report that identifies gaps and opportunities, providing EIT with a pathway to follow.

Another goal of the group is to strengthen and improve the coordination and the collaboration with the European Commission services, mainly through the European Circular Economy Stakehokder Platform (ECESP) and the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV), and with other relevant stakeholders and initiatives belonging to the civil society.
