Build partnerships within Circular Economy of Plastic & Textiles

The Partnership Circular Plastic and Textiles, Innomission#4 invites entrepreneurs, SME’s, large corporations, leading researchers,  NGO, relevant public companies and offices within the field of plastic and textiles to attend the conference as a start-up for the process of Pool 2.

“Build partnerships within circular economy of plastic and textiles”

Join the conference to:

  • create new circular economy partnerships to solve the biggest issues within the plastic and textiles industry
  • bring Denmark in an even more circular direction – together
  • become a part of valuable network between universities, businesses and organizations
  • create and get acces to research on textiles and plastic.

The conference will take place on the 24th of January, at Volkerts Fylke, Kolding, and will be a full day of sessions, panels and time for setting up new partnerships.

The Circular Economy partnership invests in ambitious, cross-industrial research and innovation projects that can create new, concrete solutions to issues and challenges towards 2030 and 2050 outlined. The focus must be on plastics and/or textiles.

To be considered, a project should comprise active participants in

  • the project’s design
  • the realization of the project
  • and the operational implementation of results from the project.

Relevant collaborations must also be considered across organizations, research institutions and public institutions. Collaboration with SME’s and starts-ups is specifically encouraged.

Systemic approach and public/private collaboration have priority:

Essential for the realization of the partnership goals is the ability to demonstrate collaboration with a systemic approach on a new and more advanced scale. Collaboration between public and private companies is essential for the success of circular economy.

At the conference companies will pitch their challenges at roundtables. The companies listed below are confirmed, and more will follow

Participate as organizations, research institutions and public institutions in a number of roundtables discuss challenges and possibilities in a positive atmosphere in order to find solutions to make a transition towards Circular Economy within PLAST, TEXTILES & COMMON.
