New call in the circular economy

At its latest meeting, Mistra’s Board decided to announce funding for a new research and innovation programme to foster development of a circular economy.

The new initiative seeks to close environmental loops and boost resource efficiency in society through reuse and remanufacturing of products on a considerably larger scale.

‘We find that there is great interest in the circular economy, and this initiative comes at exactly the right time. Deliberate design of new products so that they last longer and can be maintained, repaired and upgraded will reduce the volume of new raw materials society needs,’ says Mistra’s Chief Executive Åke Iverfeldt.

The funding application call is expected to open on 22 September, with the closing application date in mid-December.
