The European Commission has launched a call for applications to join a mission on circular economy, from 22nd to 26th October 2018. The mission will take place in Japan and Indonesia.

Developing a circular economy is essential in order to foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs. The attractiveness and the necessity of the circular economy model lie in the fact that it offers solutions to volatile material cost, issues of security of supply for certain crucial raw materials and increasing costs of managing waste appropriately while minimising the negative environmental impacts associated to the current linear production model. Increased resource efficiency and circular economy solutions will improve the competitiveness of companies and create new growth opportunities in green markets domestically and abroad.

The following possible focal areas for the mission have been identified:

  • Waste,
  • Plastics (including marine litter),
  • Chemicals.

Deadline for applications: Friday 13th July 2018.
