SPCleantech is co-founder of European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments (ICEI Alliance) consisting of European clusters and universities. During 2020-2021 there have been held meetings to prepare the establishment of the European Alliance for Cross- Industrial Circular Economy Investments, hosted by the Circular Economy Centre at Digipolis, Kemi, Finland.

The ICEI Alliance has for ambition to make Europe the global industrial circular economy platform to accelerate the deployment of world-class circular economy solutions to industry. It acts as a pipeline of business-led circular economy investment projects. Alliance members support businesses with the structuring of their investment cases as well as with accessing funding and financing streams.

New application to Horizon Europe

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

SPCleantech submitted together with Partners a new application to Horizon Europe for funding common project CIRC4Transform from the program HORIZON-CL4-2022-RESILIENCE-01.

CIRC4Transform aims to accelerate circular economy deployment and scale-up in SMEs through investment at scale. By designing and running Circular Deployment Investment Accelerator, SMEs from the key value chains as identified in the EU Circular Economy Action Plan will access enabling services and financial support that will foster their investment readiness and the deployment of circular solutions at scale.

The methodology will be framed in a two-stage call for SMEs where phase 1 will be open in a pan-European context, allowing SMEs from different geographies to start their circular tranformation journey. Using the Ready2LOOP, powered by MATChE, developed by DTU, as a point of departure, the consortium will implement an approach combining assessments of readiness to circular transition, provision of support & advisory services for organizational change in different domains, matchmaking to providers of circular solutions and services and coaching on access to finance all targeted to EU SMEs.

The process will culminate in the provision of vouchers to SMEs for uptake of advanced Circular solutions from technology providers either of their choice, or from EIT/EIC portfolio and according to their most pressing needs and unrealized potential. The overall journey of the SMEs will be complemented by continuous tracking of progress using the Ready2LOOP at different stages of the process which will allow evaluation on how companies change during their circularity transition – first, after receiving support & advisory services (soft support) and subsequently after uptake of advanced CE technologies through the vouchers (investment support).

The project aims to support at least 50 SMEs from different EU geographies and sectors in the accelerated deployment of circular economy models, technologies, and solutions, promoting the drivers and investment needed for a sustainable and digital Europe and contributing to the objectives of the European Green Deal and EU SME strategy.
