C-VoUCHER, the EU-funded project adopting the concept of the Circular Economy to transform linear value chains (cradle to waste) towards circular models (cradle to cradle®), has launched the 2nd open call for SMEs willing to participate in its Circularity Programme.
The open call targets classic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) active in the following verticals: Agro-Food, Health, Manufacturing, Blue Growth and Textile.
Up to 13 finalists will be selected to pitch their proposals in an onsite event. The 6 best out of those will be invited to join the C-VoUCHER’s acceleration programme and will be stimulated to create innovative circularity solutions (products or services) using enabling technologies (Digital, Hybrid & Engineering) and/or circular economy building blocks to address the challenges identified in the sectors mentioned above.
The Circularity Programme includes tailored and dedicated Designer-in-Residence support (1-on-1 mentoring), vouchers for technology implementation (worth up to 58.000 EUR), top business mentoring and support to identify further funding opportunities (both public and private).
SMEs interested in designing circular prosperity can apply for the 2nd open call of the Circularity Programme of C-VoUCHER before December, 31st, 2019 at 17:00 hrs. (CET).
