Nordic Circular Arena

Project 2020 - 2023 Closed

What is the Nordic Circular Arena?

The Nordic Circular Arena is an online platform that gathers the Nordics to create an even stronger circular economy ecosystem and network. The aim is to enhance collaboration and knowledge sharing across Nordics, sectors and various stakeholders, and be your dashboard for the circular transition in the Nordic region. Furthermore, the Nordic Circular Arena will showcase what is happening in the Nordic circular economy for international users.

Why a digital platform for the circular economy in the Nordics?

The project group will implement the Nordic Circular Arena in the digital platform-tool Hivebrite. The Nordic circular economy stakeholder platform is a tool to stimulate and significantly increase the regional, cross-national and cross-sectoral exchange of knowledge, market intelligence, information, innovations, solutions, technologies, best practices, financial resources and experiences related to the transition from a linear to a circular economy.


In the program: Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation, one of Nordic Innovation’s goals is to make the Nordics a hub for the circular economy. With the Nordic Circular Arena, the Nordic Circular Hotspot will be a part of making this happen.

The platform will focus on: Networking and partnerships, knowledge sharing, and members will be able to share events. The platform is made based on an analysis carried out by Accenture for Nordic Innovation.
