The CIRCUSOL project (Circular business models for the solar power industry) is a new European initiative funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission. CIRCUSOL aims to establish solar power as a spearhead sector to demonstrate a path driven by Product-Service System (PSS) business models towards a circular economy in Europe.
The project has been recently launched in Brussels where members of the CIRCUSOL consortium participated together in the kick-off meeting. Representatives of the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) of the European Commission took part in the event, a great opportunity to set up the basic procedures and the firsts steps for the success of this new initiative.
CIRCUSOL has a total budget of 8,255,590 € and an EU contribution of 7,014,892,76 €. The project will run for the next 4 years with 15 organisations from 7 European countries.
