SCALER will take part in the 2019 World Circular Economy Forum from 3-6 May in Helsinki, Finland, with partner EIT Climate-KIC presenting at the event “Improving resource efficiency through industrial symbiosis – Opportunities for SMEs”.

When: Thursday 6 June: 8.45-17.00
Where: Metropol Hietaniemi, Hietaniemenkatu 14, Helsinki, Finland 

Industrial symbiosis is an industrial ecosystem where unused or residual resources of one company are used by another, which results in mutual economic, social and environmental benefits. The event, co-organised by the European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre – EREK, seeks to answer questions such as: What are the key drivers for success in industrial symbiosis and how to resolve possible barriers? What can we learn from each other to succeed even better? What’s in it for businesses and especially SMEs?

At the session, Cliona Howie from EIT Climate-KIC will present key drivers, enablers and intermediaries to scale up industrial symbiosis in Europe based on findings from the Horizon 2020 SCALER Project.
