Embracing circular manufacturing: Adopting repair solutions

Manufacturing and repair will play a pivotal role in a global, circular economy. Various EU member states have experimented, learned, failed – but also succeeded. It is time to take stock of what works – and what can be scaled up to make repair truly mainstream. We’ll cover policies, business models, technology, skills and design for repair as fundamental transition paths. In a co-creative session, we let stakeholders and Member States learn and leap. If you feel energised to tackle these questions with us, join our session!

Please note that all accelerator sessions require separate registration.
