Partner offer (competences/expertise)

We are coordinators in the research project R2Pi – “tRansition from linear 2 circular: Policy and Innovation” funded by the European H2020 programme which aims to develop cornerstones for mainstreaming circular economy business models (CEBM). It highlights sustainable business models for a circular economy and proposes “Policy Packages” that will support the implementation and transition towards such business models. To do so, the project partners are analysing market and policy failures that currently impede more circular approaches or favour the persistence of linear value chains respectively. On the company side, case studies covering different sectors and countries help to understand the diversity of approaches as well as patterns that promote the circular transition of value chains. The accumulated knowledge will enable the project partners to develop the R2Pi toolbox and policy guidelines to support both businesses and policy makers.

As the coordinator of the project, we are involved in all deliverables and bring our think and do expertise with emphasis on case study analysis, stakeholder engagement, and multi-actor sharing channels to validate and communicate results. We are involved in both the business toolkit development as well as the formulation of policy advice.

Additionally we have pre-established good contacts with a strong sustainability research institute from Brazil if this should still be needed for the consortium.
