International Conference on Circular Economy for Competitive Regions

The International Conference on Circular Economy for Competitive Regions will take place on 28 November at the Šiauliai arena in Šiauliai, Lithuania.

The circular economy offers new opportunities. It is necessary to transform the economies of countries and their regions and make them more sustainable, to contribute to climate goals and to preserve the world's resources. This would provide a competitive edge in a rapidly changing world.

The importance of the circular economy to industry is increasing. In the transition to a circular economy, it is essential to follow the main trends, and to evaluate the optional models and the functioning of the various elements of circular economy.

How can the transition to a circular economy increase the attractiveness of regions for investment, add value and create jobs and stimulate innovation? How can economic operators reap the benefits of the internal market for secondary raw materials?

At this conference, experts from the European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee, EUROCHAMBRES, Šiauliai University, entrepreneurs and the community will seek answers to these and other questions.
