Categories: Projects' events
High upfront investment costs are a recurring challenge for many circular economy initiatives. Through this workshop, the BRINC project addressed this issue by providing an overview of different funding sources for circular economy innovations (public programmes, private investments and green loans), and by informing project promoters on how to strategically access such funding.

Guest speakers answered questions such as: What type of funds are available for your circular economy initiative? Which criteria are to be filled to access funding? How to build a business case for your circular innovation?
