European Union's Horizon Europe program is funding the CircularPSP project, which aims to help cities transition towards a Circular Economy (CE). The project involves eight leading cities and cities network, representing 45 million citizens, with a substantial investment of €5.64 million in Research and Development (R&D). The project leverages a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) approach, allowing public sector bodies to engage jointly in the procurement of R&D services to create cutting-edge solutions not yet available in the market. The project also integrates advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to drive the transition towards a circular economy. The CircularPSP project aims to contribute to the advancement of a comprehensive circular economy taxonomy, ensuring clarity and coherence in circular economy initiatives. The success of CircularPSP will be measured by its ability to accelerate the digital transition towards a circular economy, making CE practices more accessible and impactful for cities and businesses alike. The project invites other cities, regions, government organizations, public procurers, and projects to follow CircularPSP.
