Sustainable Circular Economy: New opportunities for raw materials, chemicals and water?

On 15 March Cefic, ERRIN and the East & North Finland region are jointly organising a workshop on ‘The Sustainable Circular Economy – new opportunities for raw materials, chemicals and water?’ in Brussels.

Raw materials, chemicals and water are often regarded as traditional and mature industrial sectors but increased interest in the circular economy linked to Europe’s recently published Circular Economy Strategy has opened up new thinking and new business models based on novel innovative approaches.

What new opportunities are available for these industries and how can regions support innovation and new sectors of competitive industries?

How can regions enhance collaboration within and between the sectors?

How will smart specialisation strategies encourage collaboration between regions?

This workshop will seek to answer some of these questions and explore new opportunities in chemicals, water and raw materials with a focus on regional engagement and interregional collaboration.

More information
The all-day workshop will feature dedicated sessions on EU Policy, Chemicals and Resource Efficiency, Water, and Raw Materials.

The workshop will take place at the Greater Birmingham and West Midlands - Brussels Office on Avenue d'Auderghem in Brussels. More information and a programme for the day can be found here. You can register for the workshop here.
