FUTURE CIRCULAR CITY EDITION

The Unlocked initiative is opening up opportunities in the region of the South Holland for global innovators to test and scale solutions together with local businesses and government. We bring startups and scaleups together with large businesses in a digital environment to make deals and solve circular challenges. So what are you waiting for? The second meetup of Unlocked will take place on 22 and 23 September 2020.

Innovate together

Designing waste out of economic processes is at the core of a circular economy. This means maximizing the use of natural resources, and keeping products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times. Both the business and public sectors have a fundamental role to play to systematically avoid waste and recover resources through circular design and recycling technologies. By establishing wide collaborations, a world without waste is possible.

Data and digitally-enabled solutions are strong contributors to the realization of a circular economy. The introduction of 5G technology has with its many applications the potential to improve traceability of materials, and allow the implementation of flexible and efficient solutions capable of bringing us closer to a circular economy.

The construction sector is the biggest user of raw materials worldwide. While raw materials are becoming scarcer and prices more volatile, demand for them is constantly increasing. This shows the urgency of transforming the built environment to become fully circular. To achieve this objective, a diverse range of technological solutions are required such as: advanced materials, bio-based solutions, digital technologies, value recovery through secondary raw materials, and circular design & business models.
