Circular infrastructure in international perspective

online | 9th of February 2022

Following the global launch of the international publication ‘Circular Infrastructure: the road towards a sustainable future’, we will talk about international circular opportunities for Dutch companies and organizations in this sector. The publication includes many best practices from the Netherlands but also an action agenda that aims to involve parties in Europe and other parts of the world. We need to get involved internationally and help shape the agenda towards circular infrastructure.

This session is organized by Rijkswaterstaat and Holland Circular Hotspot.



This event is available in Dutch only!

Program and registration

During the online session (13:00-14:00hrs) the parties that initiated the publication – Rijkswaterstaat, TNO and Holland Circular Hotspot – will shortly present their point of view. Then we will give the floor to Dutch companies that offer circular products and solutions and have international experience. How did they set foot abroad, what have they learned and what should be done to stimulate and create circular infrastructure internationally?
