European institutions plan to help accelerate the transition to a circular economy by raising awareness of its advantages to the widest possible audience.

To this end, membership organisations across the continent working with SMEs are being offered the opportunity to receive training in it thanks to a European Commission initiative. The objective is for these trade bodies to then use what they learn from the likes of KPMG and Ecofys to develop circular economy training programmes for their members.

Interested parties have until 18 September to apply. The training materials will also be publicly available.
