AMS Kick-off Circular Innovation Program

Circular Innovation Program – City of Amsterdam
Thinking globally, innovation locally

On January 30, alderman Ollongren, alderman Choho and Sladjana Mijatovic from the City of Amsterdam will kick-off the innovation program. After that, several partners from the Circular Innovation Program will pitch their projects in an interactive setting. The afternoon will be closed off with networking drinks.

GOAL
Share knowledge, inspire and connect.

The Circular Innovation Program 2016-2018 provides insight into the most important innovation projects and developments in the city in the field of Circular Economy and the way the City of Amsterdam anticipates.

The City of Amsterdam expects that the projects from this innovation program will result into accelerated insights in the transition towards a circular economy. Besides circular knowledge development, circular procurement and learning by doing innovation pilots & projects, the municipality also starts charting the restrictive laws and regulations that are possibly obstructing circular innovation projects in the city. Together with the national government these insights will be used to create the right conditions for the transition.

In 2018, the projects will be evaluated and the municipality determines what the strategy will be for the medium term.
