Knowledge institutes and -collaborations

We aim to be a circular hotspot that enables CE knowledge to be shared without boundaries. In the future we will provide tools in which CE knowledge is mapped and potential partners are findable. In the meantime you can find an overview of Dutch CE knowledge institutes and the link to ‘Het Groene Brein’. The platform ‘Het Groene Brein’ helps businesses to implement new, sustainable business models using the latest scientific knowledge on sustainability. For now, their website is only available in Dutch.
