Today's linear ‘take, make, dispose’ economic model relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy, and is a model that is reaching its physical limits. A circular economy is an attractive and viable alternative that businesses have already started exploring today. As regard of this, CAP Innove asbl and the Province of Walloon Brabant has decided to give SMEs (with a focus on Very Small Enterprises (VSE)) from the Province the opportunity to become involved in the circular economy transition of Walloon Brabant. This has taken the form of The Circular Economy Awards in Brabant Wallon (EU GREEN WEEK PARTNER EVENT).The Circular Economy Awards in Brabant wallon is a competition that aims to create circular economy projects and generate new green jobs in the Province. The competition begun on February 2017 and conclude with the Awards Ceremony that took place in Nivelles on 2017, May 30th. The event was organised by CAP Innove asbl, Enterprise Europe Network partner, and the Province of Brabant wallon.The winners will be supported to successful the projects, will be funded for their project and the finalists will participate in a Company Mission in Germany, jointly organised by CAP Innove asbl/Enterprise Europe Network Wallonia and IMG GmbH/Enterprise Europe Network Rhineland-Palatinate. The scope of this company mission was extended to the whole Walloon Region.The program is still under construction but will include bilateral meetings, pitch session, company visits, etc. The walloon delegation will be welcomed at Birkenfeld (Environment Campus) and will be supported by the Greater Green project. Then, the delegation will be welcomed at Mainz by the Ministery.
