REACT NOW: Opportunities for SMEs

What are the biggest challenges and profitable paths forward? This session introduces the circular economy and business development, including interesting business cases and in-depth workshops.

Time: Thursday 1 June at 15:00–18:00 EEST (UTC+3) 
Place: Sofia Helsinki, Sonckin sali, Sofiankatu 4, Helsinki  

You will learn about new business opportunities in the circular economy and hear interesting business cases about B2C innovations. The session will begin with keynotes by Stefano Soro on European Commission actions on the circularity of products and Anne Raudaskoski from Ethica on export and local business opportunities in a circular economy, followed by a panel discussion that explores what kind of support in research, investments and knowledge is needed in order for micro and small companies to move towards circularity.

The final workshop offers practical support for SMEs to recognise their business potential in the circular economy. The event also offers networking possibilities.
