Over the course of 24 months (running from October 2016 to September 2018), the project team:
- Collected an evidence base of reliable datasets and projections and made the evidence base available for the development of impact assessments;
- Pointed out innovative approaches based on the circular-economy concept in Member States;
- Assessed the economic, societal and resource-efficiency impacts of selected transitions on existing or new markets over time;
- Compiled model-based estimates and assessments of macroeconomic, societal and environmental costs and benefits of circular-economy transitions; and
- Described market and societal impacts of resource and waste flows and changes to those flows
CIRCULAR IMPACTS was a two-year EU-funded research project involving three European research institutions.
