NEW_InnoNet organizes consultation meeting for European branch organizations
On 26 February, NEW_InnoNet organized a consultation meeting for European branch organizations. Around 30 representatives gathered in the Euroflat Hotel in Brussels to discuss the project and to explore possibilities to join the project’s stakeholder platform. The meeting was hosted by the project coordinator PNO Consultants.
NEW_InnoNet is an EU-funded project that aims to mobilise stakeholders towards building a circular economy. Together with its stakeholders, the project develops innovation roadmaps and a near zero waste strategic research and innovation agenda. The agenda provides the European Commission with essential input for its innovation and research policies on this topic. The project has a specific focus on three waste streams: plastics, end-of-life vehicles and electronic waste.The engagement of key players in this field is essential for the development of the roadmaps and the agenda. NEW_InnoNet provides EU branch organisations with the opportunity to get their member priorities into the roadmap and SRA development. This SRA will help shaping the calls in the EU innovation and R&D funding programmes.NEW_InnoNet serves as a matchmaker and facilitator for developing innovative circular economy plans. For instance by providing a neutral collaboration platform for actors to discuss their plans with other key players in the field. Industrial competitots, for example, can use NEW_InnoNet as a neutral platform for end-of-life products discussions and strategies. NEW_InnoNet support them with logistical issues and contacting the right stakeholders.Stakeholders can decide their level of involvement according to the interests of their members. We invite all stakeholders to help setting the agenda for a near zero waste economy.More information on the project is available on the project website (www.newinnonet.eu).
