Q&A sessions Circular Economy for Dutch representations - 2021
On behalf of Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and Holland Circular Hotspot, we would like to invite you to the second edition of the virtual Q&A sessions with a special contribution from representatives of the Netherlands Embassies on November 23, 2021, one at 09:00-10:30 CET and one at 16:00 – 17:30 CET.
In the Q&A sessions, RVO and Holland Circular Hotspot will briefly share their latest circular insights from The Netherlands to help create a fertile ground for circular investments and collaboration.
We are very pleased that representatives of Dutch embassies will join us to share their experiences on circular economy and work with us. Each session includes presentations from two different countries.
We are also looking forward to hearing from you: what are your questions and how we can assist you. After the event, we will prepare a document with the main questions & answers to spread it through the embassy network.

Circular Booster Programme
In 2020 in light of the impact of the pandemic Holland Circular Hotspot developed the online Circular Booster Programme, made to measure for Dutch representative offices. It consists of the following elements:
- two-pager country report with 3 selected circular opportunities areas,
- extended supportive webpage on HCH website,
- dedicated webinar on one of the opportunity areas in anticipation of future physical follow-up events.
The programme has been rolled out in Belgium, France and Germany and is now expanding to three other continents. See our Spotlight countries page for a preview or look back at the HCH country webinars:
