European cluster-led accelerator for digitalization of the Circular Economy across key emerging sectors


The general objective of this project is to facilitate the transition of European SMEs and startups toward Circular Economy with the use of digital tools. This objective is pursued through three acceleration programs relating to three strategic sectors (Circular Cities, Blue Economy, and Bioeconomy).
