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.

  • Sustainable solutions for business events

  • 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
