From waste to value - Nordic opportunities in the circular economy

Tram in Oslo driving by on a sunny day.

The Eyde cluster, together with its partners from the Nordic Symbiosis Network will arrange a Nordic workshop. Here they are gathering experienced practitioners from the circular economy to discuss existing obstacles against- and identify opportunities for - an international circular approach. The aim is to identify regulatory and financial barriers that need to be addressed at international, rather than national level. The goal is to provide recommendations to the Nordic countries on how the Nordic region can lead the way.

Furthermore the workshop aims to facilitate more Nordic collaboration amongst the participants directly.

The event is part of a pre-project supported by Nordic Innovation under the Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation program.
