CIRCULAR4.0 Digital technologies as enabler to foster the transition to the circular economy by the SME in the Alpine Space area
New technologies can be used for the creation of innovative circular economy business models to contribute to a more sustainable future. However, how can such a transformation be carried out? The project Circular 4.0 improved the Alpine eco-system of innovation and contributed to the transition to a circular economy in the Alpine area by focusing on SMEs and economic operators. An eco-system of innovation (policy makers, stakeholders, academia and research institutions, entrepreneurs and citizens) was identified for better cooperation and tools were developed and tested to attain the ultimate goal: to strengthen digitalisation processes by SMEs to foster innovation processes and accelerate the transition to the circular economy in Alpine Space.
