Plastic Info Flows
The project evaluates the plastic packaging value chains – from material use to end of life – to understand where improved information flows could lead to the prevention of plastic waste. Circular Berlin works together with TU Berlin to realise the project and understand different implementation scenarios. Other partners are Wuppertal institute, TU Delft, Circularise, and Cyclic Design.
CircleVET aims to evaluate and exchange smart practice methods on circular economy skills. The collected practices, methods and experiences target circular methods in three areas: fashion, recycling and co-working and innovation hubs. The project is a partnership between Circular Berlin and Future Fashion Forward e.V. in Berlin, and it is a part of extended European consortium.
