Brief description: Within the framework of the three-year CIRCOTRONIC project, the circular economy of electronic products (EEEs) is to be improved. Together with SMEs, circular products and business models will be developed, circular hubs for information exchange will be created and a catalog of measures for political implementation will be developed.

In the first work package, various tools will be developed on the topics of design, materials & recovery, and business models and value chains. These will be tested in participating countries with SMEs of the EEE sector to develop circular solutions.

In the second work package, "circular" labs will be created, where experiences will be exchanged in an international network to support the development of circular solutions.

In the third work package, political framework conditions and necessary measures will be defined in order to further realize the circular economy for EEEs.
