The World Circular Economy Forum 2017 (WCE Forum 2017) is the platform to discuss circular economy solutions for businesses and finance. It will bring together recognised experts and decision makers in the field to share their ideas and to find common visions towards the transition to a Circular Economy globally. The event will involve three days of discussions, networking, workshops, side events and business excursions.
The European Investment Bank will participate in 3 sessions focusing on financing circular projects and small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). The first session will focus on building partnerships for advancing circular economy and eco-innovation approaches, the second session will outline how circular principles can be incorporated into investment strategies; a third session will take the form of a networking event to match investors with projects and circular SMEs.
All sessions aim to bring the audience closer to innovative circular solutions and business models, discuss funding and investment opportunities, and link investors and innovators.
