Business is renewed with circular economy know-how in Häme region

Circular economy and digitalization have risen to a significant role in societal change. New business opportunities created by circular economy are just beginning to emerge. A project started in Häme region supports local enterprises in developing business models in circular economy.

With circular economy business models, the requirements of sustainable development, resource efficiency and customer expectations are met. LAB University of Applied Sciences is involved in a project in which circular economy business models are developed and new revenue generation models are sought out. The target groups of the project are small and medium-sized enterprises particularly in Kanta-Häme region and Päijät-Häme region.

”The project supports regional goals in sustainable growth and green transition through developing circular economy know-how in these regions. At the same time, collaboration between universities and small and medium-sized enterprises is strengthened”, describes the project manager and RDI specialist Tanja Kähkönen from LAB.

Digitalization has a significant role in enabling circular economy business models. Digital solutions facilitate creating new possibilities for instance in recycling of materials, extending product lifespan and utilization rate and developing services supporting circular economy.

The aim of the Renewing Business with Circular Economy Know-How project is to promote renewal and competitiveness of enterprises through developing circular economy business models and supporting the availability of skilled labour force in future.

There are still places for participants – participation for enterprises is free of charge

The project offers for instance webinars, information events and innovation workshops through which a situation on the possibilities of circular economy business models will be formulated. Participation in the project is free of charge for businesses.
