Week of Circular Economy workshop: ‘Serious game circular value chain’

The Hague NL | 9th until 9th of February 2023

Would you like to know more about circular business models? Then come to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency during the Week of the Circular Economy and explore the circular value chain with our serious game. You will learn about different circular strategies and innovative business models through good practice examples from circular SMEs across Europe.

This workshop/serious game is intended for Dutch entrepreneurs and employees of companies, knowledge institutions and governments who want to learn about circular business models. The workshop will be held in English.

What can you expect?

The organiser of the workshop is the Green Economy Network NRW (KNUW.NRW). The German network supports the development of the green economy in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). It offers networking opportunities, information and supports research and development, internationalisation and market development. As part of its international strategy, KNUW initiated and led the virtual Circular Economy Tour across Europe, where many Dutch companies presented and discussed circular economy business models together with their European counterparts.


During the serious game, we investigate scenarios related to legislation and regulations, waste management and global markets from the perspective of different business models.

An example: imagine a scenario where the procurement of raw materials for battery production is interrupted and the available raw materials become very expensive. How would the following companies perform in this new world?

  • a start-up that has developed a platform for battery trading;
  • a company using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve battery efficiency;
  • a company that focuses on a second battery life; 
  • a company that develops strategies to extend the life of lithium batteries.

These and many other scenarios will give you a deeper understanding of the resilience of circular business models.
