Increased resource efficiency, industry funding to a circular economy

För att svensk industri ska kunna bidra till en resurseffektiv och cirkulär ekonomi krävs att existerande lösningar förbättras och i många fall att nya lösningar utvecklas. Vinnova vill med den här utlysningen bidra till ett effektivt nyttjande av material- och energiresurser genom att finansiera innovationsprojekt.
