The consultation includes two phases: a first discussion phase till 28th August 2019, where circular economy actors can share their vision of the circular economy objectives to be achieved by 2030 across various themes (plastics, construction, food, etc.). This will be followed by an evaluation phase, starting on 13th September, where participants will be invited to vote on ideas and inputs from all contributors.

The results of the consultation will help better understand where future efforts and funding should be directed, and contribute to shaping the European Circular Economy Strategic Agenda for Research and Innovation.

This consultation follows a first benchmark of circular economy funding programmes in the EU, a definition of key priorities circular economy Research & Innovation, and survey to understand programme owners and funders’ needs for a joint programming platform.
