There are already international initiatives underway to make resource effectiveness and circular economy happen. But how do we cooperate more closely and avoid duplication? How do we find and share best practice? And what possibilities are there to finance Nordic cooperation further, so that we reach a truly circular and resource-effective region?

The event is arranged by the IVA project Resource Effectiveness and Circular Economy, focusing on three main goals: To create a platform for resource effectiveness and a circular economic, to draw conclusions for policymakers, research and industry on which choices Sweden has to make, and to create cooperation and progress forward.
