As the consequences of climate change and lack of resources are becoming more apparent, the need to change our current production and consumption patterns is obvious. The Circular by Design Challenge is aimed at inciting established businesses and start-ups to develop products and services that will contribute to a more circular and sustainable world.

Four thematic calls for sustainable solutions

Circular by Design Challenge cooperates with partners looking for innovative, sustainable solutions to respond to challenges in their specific field. Edition #3 includes four thematic calls in the fields of:

  • Sustainable solutions for business events
  • Multifunctional urban furniture
  • Sustainable products for the LuXembourg Collection
  • Sustainable solutions that can contribute to development cooperation and humanitarian aid

Circular by Design Challenge offers:

  • 12 weeks of personalised coaching by experts
  • Guidance from the Challenge’s partner organisations and other experts
  • The opportunity to pitch your project to industry at a specific event
  • The opportunity to compete for an €8,000 award in each thematic field
