Why attend the Circular Materials Conference?

Come and share experiences at the two-day event that will offer a forum for debate, exchange, face-to-face meetings and networking. We will look at the challenge of transformation in a material world, consumer trends and the circular economy and also meet the disruptors. We will make deep dives into new business models for a circular economy, and into research and innovation.

Meet R&D management representatives, producers, recyclers, collectors and reclaimers, retailers, officials of national and supra-national institutions, non-governmental organisations (NGO:s), research institutions, academia, resource recovery/waste management, clean-tech investors, and the media – all in one location.
