Circular Economy & Waste Management: Business Opportunities in France

online | 12th of November 2020

The NBSO Lyon, the Dutch Embassy in Paris and Holland Circular Hotspot invite you to participate in the digital French-Dutch meet up on Waste Management and Cleantech on 12 November.

In recent years, the Dutch industry has always been strongly represented at the Pollutec, the bi-annual fair in Lyon for companies with products and / or services in the field of Waste Management, Environmental Technologies and Cleantech. Despite the fact that the fair will not be able to take place physically this year, organizing parties want to ensure that Dutch companies have sufficient opportunity at the time of Covid-19 to gain market knowledge and to come into contact with potential customers or partners in France.
