Welcome to the gateway of global circularity!

Embark on a journey into the heart of circular innovation with the Enterprise Europe Network. Whether you're a seasoned expert in the circular economy or a newcomer eager to dive into transformative ideas, your golden opportunity awaits!

Why Circular Economy?

The shift towards a circular economy is not just a choice, it's a necessity. In a world seeking sustainable solutions, embracing circularity is the key to reducing waste, conserving resources and fostering innovation.

Online Matchmaking (April 8 - April 14):

The Enterprise Europe Network Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels are organizing an official side-event of WCEF2024 presenting our global online matchmaking as your ticket to the world of circular innovation.

From April 8 to April 14, immerse yourself in a week of exciting possibilities, setting the stage for the main WCEF.

Unlock opportunities: discover meaningful encounters that can accelerate the circular economy and fuel the growth of your business or research. Whether you're actively seeking collaborations or just curious about emerging technologies, this is your chance to connect with like-minded individuals.

We extend a warm welcome to participants of all backgrounds, including business leaders, advisors, experts, innovators, policymakers, investors, researchers, startups and industry enthusiasts. Engage in the creation of new relationships that span different sectors and industries, connecting with people from across the globe.

Physical Matchmaking (April 17 at SQUARE Brussels):

The Belgian EU presidency team is proud to host the event ‘BE Circular Economy Forum: Beyond Experimentation’, on April 17 at SQUARE Brussels. The program is not just interesting, it goes beyond; allowing you immerse yourself in practical insights, hands-on workshops, and keynotes on how the circular economy can become mainstream. 

You can register for the event on April 17th via this link. Registrations for the matchmaking during this event are to be completed via the event website: https://circularshift.b2match.io/. Registration through both channels is necessary to participate in the on-site matchmaking.

During the breaks of this event, you can seize the opportunity to plan meetings with the people you would like to meet in person but might otherwise miss at a large event. You can book meetings during the following time slots:

  • 11:00 - 11:30
  • 13:00 - 14:30
  • 16:00 - 17:00

Create your online profile with care

We urge you to invest time in the registration process and thoughtfully curate your profile. Doing so ensures that you maximize your chances of meaningful and successful meetings.

Let’s go!

Your enthusiasm and commitment will shape the success of these events and, more importantly, the future of circularity. Together, let's turn possibilities into realities!
