Join Circular Investment Readiness Network's cycle of 10 interactive sessions: 2023-2026

The EU is home to numerous circular economy initiatives that have the potential to cut carbon emissions, reduce waste and boost economic resilience. However, projects and stakeholders that could support each other often miss vital opportunities for collaboration.

The Circular Investment Readiness Network (CIRN) aims to bridge this gap by bringing circular economy stakeholders together to exchange knowledge, develop know-how and be part of a collaborative space.

The network will feature ten interactive sessions from November 2023 to November 2026, with topics such as:

  • getting started with circular projects,
  • securing funding,
  • measuring impact, and
  • scaling up.

Kick-off event: online, 21 November 2023

The CIRN kick-off event organised by CircularInvest and DEFINITE-CCRI will take place online on 21 November from 10:00 to 11:30 CET. It aims to equip participants with a comprehensive understanding of the topics and goals of the community, while also fostering collaboration and setting the stage for an inspiring learning environment.

Investors, city representatives, entrepreneurs and circular economy experts will contribute to the discussion, shedding light on the most common issues related to the implementation of circular projects. The event will explore the do's and don'ts of seeking investments, the importance of assessing environmental and social impacts and how to create the right conditions for circular businesses to thrive.
