About the organizers
Competence Centre Recycling (CCR)
Competence Centre Recycling (CCR) started in 2007 and has the goal of being a network and catalyst for multidisciplinary R&D collaboration within the field of circular use of materials. Reuse of products and components as well as highly-developed recycling technologies are central aspects of a resource-efficient use of materials for increased competitiveness and a sustainable society. Such a transition confronts us with a number of complex issues which must be addressed from different perspectives. Based on the members’ competence and dedication, CCR is an important actor for developing the field.
RE:Source is a Swedish strategic innovation program with the mission to enable and support solutions that will contribute to a sustainable and circular material system within the planetary boundaries. Since RE:Source started in 2016, over 150 projects have been financed through the program, primarily through open calls but also as strategic projects. The open calls focus on innovations and tools that can influence the development of an environmentally and economically sustainable circular use of materials. The strategic projects are often about mapping an area and examining how its actors assess the need for research and innovation. The strategic projects do not only bring out new knowledge, but also ensure that RE:Source contributes to solutions that are in demand and can have a substantial effect.
RE:Source is funded with support from The Swedish Energy Agency, Formas and Vinnova.
