Powering access to investment for next generation circular economy initiatives in cities and regions

2022 - 2026

CircularInvest will provide project development assistance (PDA) to selected circular economy project promoters from across Europe with the aim to develop significant projects at the local and regional scales, and close investments for an overall volume of more than €20 million.

During the project’s lifetime, CircularInvest will launch two calls for expressions of interest to engage circular economy project promoters. The services offered include project development assistance, knowledge transfer and networking opportunities.

The lessons learnt from CircularInvest’s experience will prepare the pathway for future replication through a Step-by-Step Guide to de-risk future circular economy projects; policy recommendations; a Circular Investor guide to increase investors’ trust; a knowledge exchange platform for project promoters; business cases to allow the replication of circular economy solutions; and a pipeline of circular economy investment opportunities to support initiatives after the project’s end.
