CIRCULOOS Open Call 1: Circular and Dynamic Manufacturing Supply Chain Orchestration and OptimiSation

CIRCULOOS Expression of Interest (EOI) aims to engage supply chain actors across various manufacturing industries (e.g., metal, construction, electrical, furniture, leather, machinery, vehicles, wood, plastic) that want to engage in circular business with other complementary entities, forming Innovative Circular Supply Chains. Participants will adopt circular practices like refurbishing, remanufacturing, and repurposing (R-strategies), collaborating regionally to enhance product and process circularity.
