The circular economy offers considerable economic benefits with analysis by McKinsey estimating that circularity could add $1trillion to the global economy by 2025. To support the move towards a circular economy the European Commission has committed over €725 million of Horizon 2020 funding in their 2016-17 work programme. The aim of the event is to support organisations to access this funding by developing innovative R&D projects. There will be opportunities for companies to meet new partners and consortium members for Horizon 2020 projects plus the opportunity to discuss new routes to market for existing solutions.
