Value chain transformation towards a Circular Economy
VNL Schweiz in collaboration with the PMI network project consortium and the Supsi Department of Innovative Technologies organizes the workshop: The transformation of value chains in the context of the circular economy, which will be held on Tuesday 12 October from 16.30 to 18.30.
The event aims to provide participants with ideas and tools to approach the development of circular business models.
After an initial introduction relating to the circular economy, its business models and the underlying enabling practices, three industrial cases will be presented that already adopt and implement these concepts.
A collaborative workshop will therefore be held in front of the first stimulus session in which participants will be able to take the first steps towards deepening the concept of circular economy applied to their business.
