  • Real steps towards a circular and bio-based economy

    Vinnova offers funding to research organizations, companies, public and non-profit organizations that have identified a concrete case, such as a value chain, a flow or a thematic area where there are good opportunities to take real steps towards developing solutions that are circular.

    In order for industry and society to change, new thinking and development are required on several fronts. Changing from linear to circular and breaking the connections between economic growth and environmental degradation requires new solutions and innovations.
