On December 6th, we debated how we can jointly create an environment where innovation becomes reality. The high-level policy discussion ‘Closing the Loop: Innovation for a Circular Economy’ took place on December 6 at the European Parliament.
MEPs Franc Bogovic (EPP, Slovenia) and Davor Skrlec (Greens/EFA, Croatia) hosted the roundtable debate preceded by six start-ups that will pitch their innovations and spice up the discussion.
The agenda includes:
12:30 – 12:50 Networking Lunch
12:50 – 13:15 Dragon’s Den – start-ups’ pitch presenting their innovation including vote
13:15 – 14:30 High-level discussion
Moderated by Peter Woodward, the high-level discussion aims at engaging stakeholders in a consumer-focused debate – how to raise awareness, foster public acceptance among end-users and accelerate transition towards the circular economy.
MEP Seb Dance, VP Mairead McGuinness, MEP Giovanni La Via, MEP Jakop Dalunde and MEP Inmaculada Rodriguez-Piñero introduced circular economy startups from their own country and were joined by MEP Gesine Meissner who spoke at the high-level policy debate.
The event was LIVESTREAMED. The recording is available below:
