December 19, 2023.- The European-funded project CIRCULOOS enables Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to transition towards a circular economy providing tools to orchestrate and optimize the supply-chain end-to-end. The entire life cycle of products is covered for sustainable production across disruptive circular manufacturing processes.
CIRCULOOS offers a transformative opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) as they embark on their journey towards a circular economy.
Applying circular economy principles across the EU economy can potentially increase EU GDP by an additional 0.5% by 2030 creating around 700,000 new jobs according to the Circular Economy Action Plan (European Commission, 2020). CIRCULOOS is focused on accelerating the digitalization of the manufacturing industry, adopting circular business models and offering sustainable products/services.
By equipping MSMEs with cutting-edge tools, CIRCULOOS enables the orchestration and optimization of the supply chain from end to end. This comprehensive approach ensures that the entire life cycle of products is addressed, promoting sustainable production through innovative and disruptive circular manufacturing processes.
CIRCULOOS and RAMP empower MSMEs to become more sustainable, agile and resilient
The project will build on the existing RAMP IOT and marketplace platform for Manufacturing SMEs, to set up production and execution processes across the supply chain in a collaborative approach. It will leverage modules for intelligent production, sustainability assessment and trustworthy data sharing.
CIRCULOOS understands that quality data is the key to navigating through alternative scenarios. Decision-making among several alternative scenarios requires quality end-to-end data, comparable results, and rapid response.
RAMP and CIRCULOOS benefit from FIWARE3.0 in terms of the enriched development environment with a set of standard APIs, and Open-Source components that enable the full adoption of Cyber-Physical IOT technology.
CIRCULOOS connect MSMEs with the circular manufacturing ecosystem
Boosting innovation and entrepreneurship in a newborn community requires a strong, innovative, and experimented ecosystem. The CIRCULOOS consortium coordinated by EUROPEAN DYNAMICS is composed of RTOs, Digital Innovation Hubs(SuPSI, CUT, INN), industrial suppliers (EDGR, ALA, FIW, INCL), manufacturing SMEs (Fiction Factory, Contenedores LOLO, KHO, B&A, THER, CAN), industrial clusters (Innomine, Alastria), open call managers (F6S), and dissemination and communication managers (MWCB), leveraging the existing networks and communities of these partners.
