CircThread ½-day events

In the project context, a series of events have been designed and transformed into what CircThread calls 1/2-day events. These events intend to make all CircThread tools and information available to the public, companies, and stakeholders to keep appliances in the economic loop longer.

Aarhus University organise the first event together with CLEAN Cluster and TECH Circle.

Why a Circular Economy workshop for companies?

The European Union’s Circular Economy Action Plan underlines the imperative transition from a linear to a circular economic model, which is essential for economic growth and resource depletion resilience. As the Circular Economy remains a relatively emerging concept, navigating its complexities presents business challenges.

Hence, there is a need to provide industries and businesses in Denmark and Europe with up-to-date information on the latest developments in the Digital Product Passport, Standardisation, and Product Design within the Circular Economy.

What will we find at this event?

The event will include three parallel workshops by industry experts, allowing attendees to participate actively.

In addition, two speakers from Danish industries will share their success stories on circularity and sustainability. The event concludes with a networking session with free drinks.

Keynote talks and network session will available only to in-person attendees!
