Public funding is the key source of financing for Circular Economy Research & Innovation programmes:
70% are financed at national level, 18% at regional and 8% at European level.

However, national and regional strategies are partly contradictive throughout Europe, leading to fragmentation and lack of alignment on priorities for the circular economy.

We need a more systemic and integrative approach to meet this challenge.

We are preparing a Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA) to support owners and designers of circular economy programmes in delivering systemic, joint initiatives for circular economy research & innovation.
