Conference: Responsible industry leads sustainable development - industry clusters connecting circular economy
Around 130 representatives of local, regional, national and European public authorities, together with industry and civil society stakeholders, will attend the conference in order to share their experiences and provide insights into future cluster policies related to the circular economy, with a focus on trends, interregional and cross-sectoral collaboration as well as funding opportunities.
The first day will revolve around high-level discussions on cluster policy and joint cluster Initiatives in the context of the circular economy. The conference aims to display how clusters have already been used to push for a regional ecosystems transition to the circular economy, and to highlight what further steps can be taken in future.
The main objective is to demonstrate how green–tech clusters in Europe (with more than 250 already registered under the European Cluster Collaboration platform) can support the implementation of the New European Green Deal.
