Do you have an innovative digital or data-driven solution that can help create a circular city? A city where businesses and people work together to make the most of our resources? An inclusive city, in which designing for circularity means providing new jobs and opportunities for all communities and citizens?
The Circular Innovation City Challenge is seeking early prototype to market-ready innovative solutions, with the potential to help create circular and thriving cities. Your solution can be cross-sector or focus on specific areas such as plastics, food, construction, textile, or others. It can focus on direct material reductions or on business and consumer behaviour. The most important thing is that your solution is digital or data-driven at its core, and responds to one or more of the innovation areas.
The challenge is a global call to action for innovators and entrepreneurs, businesses, and organisations. Challenge partners encourage all types of innovators globally to apply and help find the answers to create better and more circular cities.
The Circular Innovation City Challenge is made possible through the collaboration between the cities of Copenhagen, Glasgow, Amsterdam, New York, and Toronto, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and World Circular Economy Forum. The challenge is facilitated by the Danish Business Authority, the Danish Design Centre and Leaderlab.
