Nordic Network for Circular Construction Presents: Launch of the State of the Art Analysis on Nordic Circularity

31.1.2023 | 13.00–14.30

To accelerate circular construction in the Nordic countries through collaboration, peer-to-peer learning and common metrics, the Nordic Network for Circular Construction has produced a state of the art analysis to pinpoint where we are in circularity in the different Nordic countries. How can we learn from one another? Which innovations can we steal from across the border?

The analysis of barriers and possibilities has begun at the end of 2021. The aim is to create a cross-comparison of barriers and possibilities from the viewpoints of different stakeholders. It also aims to extend the analysis into different construction project types including building and infrastructure projects. The final analysis will be published by end of 2022.

At this event you will hear the key findings of the analysis and an expert commentary on how the findings can be implemented into practice. The audience will also have the possibility to ask questions and participate in the discussion.

The event will be hosted online on 31st of January, 2023.
