BCSSS Managing Director, Stefan Blachfellner, guided the participants through the links between the relevant European policies and the resulting support structures, from the European Green Deal, the EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy, the EU Industrial Strategy, to the Austrian RTI initiative Circular Economy and the independent Circular Economy Forum Austria. The understanding of Circular Economy was broadened by an introduction to the principles, models and strategies, with a specific focus on the digitalisation potential through the Circular Economy.
