Recycling Business Models – European Program Horizon 2020

The actions foreseen in the project contemplated the creation of several tools that allow defining a methodology and a specific strategy to boost the creation of new business opportunities for SMEs. Moreover, they help the creation of new companies based on the revalorisation of waste, equipment and their reincorporations in the life cycle of companies located in science and technology parks. Three main products were designed in the framework of RBM:

  • Handbook about Circular Economy good practices in science and technology parks (infrastructures, waste management, awareness campaigns, national and international projects, business initiatives and strategic plans).
  • Handbook about Circular Economy Opportunities for SMEs and companies
  • Compilation on the current state of implementation of the Circular Economy, in science and technology parks and suggestions for establishing circular economy maps.

The project partners were:

Málaga TechPark (Spain)

Johanneberg Science Park (Sweden)

Parque do Alentejo de Ciência e Tecnologia (Portugal)
