About the Conference

The circular economy is receiving increasing attention among CEI members as a way to overcome the pressure that increased production has caused on the living environment at the expense of water and soil quality, biodiversity, and climate.

CEI members aim at rethinking the way of producing and consuming by adopting a circular approach, which overall can improve both the environment and the competitiveness of enterprises.

In this scenario, leading academic scientist, researchers and practitioners and policymakers are called to share their research results on challenges and opportunities of implementing circular economy and to design and implement circular economy strategies.


The International Conference on Circular Economy serves as a multiplatform where interdisciplinary sessions, panels, and working groups will present and discuss new solutions for green economy in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner. The fundamental target to be reached is thinking again manufacturing systems and intervening on citizens’ consumption habits through the technological, social and organizational innovation. The conference will follow up a broader range of stakeholders, policy makers and experts to discuss policy frameworks at the national and regional levels on pro-poor development strategies, to support accelerated investments and refine the policy-relevant messages in order to obtain sustainable development leading to reduced amounts of natural resources used, wastes disposed of in landfills, and greenhouse gas emitted to the atmosphere.

The conference will conclude with a road map to promote practices and mechanisms that are sustainable, in accordance with national policies and priorities among CEI members based on sharing, circularity, collaboration, solidarity, resilience, opportunity, and interdependence.
