The Incubation Forum for Circular Economy in European Defence (IF CEED) aims to apply the circularity approach of the EU Green Deal to European defence by engaging a cooperative community, including EU defence ministries, industry, institutes, research centres, financial institutions, academia and other bodies at national and international level.
Nine working groups called "Project Circles" cover the following themes:
- Critical Raw Materials
- Additive Manufacturing
- Materials for Textiles
- Sustainable Ecodesign
- Waste Framework Directive Art. 9.1.i
- EMAS Uptake Strategy
- Green Procurement
- Circular Data
- Spare Parts Management.
Based on circular economy principles, the key goal of IF CEED is to incubate collaborative projects and their respective consortia.
