Welcome to the Nordic-global business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking event for circular innovations and market solutions—showcasing circular business ideas, scalable solutions, and business models from the Nordics and the world.

Show solutions, pitch or get help solve challenges

Want to show your solutions, and maybe pitch? Or do you have challenges to be solved? join as exhibitor and make a stand for your company or organisation.

If you want to join as personal stakeholder to see the sessions, vote for the best pitch, meet and match up with other stakeholders of the circular market solutions of the Nordics, just register and log in.

Register now!

Cooperation is an important step in the transition to the circular economy, and this matchmaking event will bring everyone together! Companies are invited to make their own virtual exhibition stand so that participants can browse their offerings beforehand. The matchmaking will partly be done in advance, and as a company, you can register with your offerings or what you are looking for from others. All Nordic companies are invited to pitch, and we will select those we find relevant for global markets.

Welcome to all and everyone from us at Nordic Innovation and Nordic Circular Hotspot.

WCEF2021 accelerator sessions

The third day of WCEF2021, September 15, 2021, is reserved for Accelerator Sessions, which are organized independently by WCEF partner organizations. The Accelerator Sessions will focus on the daily work needed to accelerate the circular transition, including the implementation of partners’ action agendas. These outcome-oriented sessions will provide an opportunity for deeper audience engagement than will be possible during the first two days of programming.
