We put in evidence an interesting opportunity in the field of Circular Economy.

LAUNCH Nordic is working to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world. To meet this goal, we seek innovations from around the globe with the potential to create the shift towards closed loop systems and a circular economy. We are now accepting applications, and the call for innovators will close September 1, 2016.

LAUNCH Nordic is a partnership hosted by IKEA Group, Novozymes, Kvadrat, The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (3GF), The Danish EPA, and Region Skåne. In collaboration with pioneering Nordic and global companies and organizations, we help scale disruptive, sustainable innovations within materials and manufacturing. 

This year, we are focusing on new types of closed loop solutions and recycling technologies. We are interested in early stage, scalable technologies and innovative business models with the potential to disrupt current material and resource flows. You can send in ideas that will impact what and how we recycle, or disruptive business models that spur new recycling and reuse incentives. Or you can surprise us with something completely different.
