Here more than 800 experts from local and international authorities, environmental companies, sector federations, civil society and knowledge institutions will gather.
  • During the meeting, they will exchange ideas, address bottlenecks in moving the circular economy forward and define new solutions to it. The forum will put you in close contact with a worldwide network of experts and expertise to test and improve your solutions.

The Recupel E-Loops challenge offers three design challenges: 

  1. Design for re-use: how can we design electronics to share them, to make them last longer and/or to make them easier to re-use?
  2. Design for collection : how would a perfect collection system for electronics look like?
  3. Design from recycling: how could we re-use the collected e-waste in the most valuable way?

OUTCOME

The outcomes of the challenge should stage a future wherein  electronics either or both
•    have a longer lifecycle and are more intensively used
•    are careful and easily collected by the whole community
•    can and will be almost seamlessly and completely re-used.
