Beyond experimentation – Europe’s leading role in mainstreaming circular practice

The Belgian EU presidency invites you to a whole day of interesting insights and examples of the evolution from experiments to mainstream circular practices. After a high-level plenary session, eight interactive workshops will take place (2×4 in parallel) focusing on systemic innovation, circular procurement, manufacturing and repair, chemicals and plastics, monitoring and digitalisation, circular hubs, manufacturing of batteries, as well as the bioeconomy and construction. The event will end with networking drinks. In addition, visits to Belgian circular economy forerunners will be available.

Organisers: Belgian Presidency of the European Council including Federal government of Belgium, Circular Flanders, Walloon Region and Brussels Region

More information: Veerle Labeeuw, Facilitator for circular economy, Circular Flanders,

This session is part of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference 2024 (ECESC) which brings to WCEF2024 a dedicated track showcasing Europe’s progress.
