Abstract

This report presents the findings from a review of more than one hundred Research & Innovation (R&I) projects under EU Framework programmes FP6 and FP7, dealing with a range of circularity considerations related to product design, manufacturing, use and after-use. Nine independent experts analysed these projects, brought in their own expertise, and identified key messages and lessons for policy makers with regard to possible future research and policy action. These findings may prove useful in the implementation of the brand-new second Circular Economy Action Plan, which develops a vision for an innovative circular material policy embedded in the broader context of the ambitious objectives for climate change mitigation that the new Commission expressed in its European Green Deal
