Call for expressions of interest for member of the Coordination Group of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform
Published on: 27/06/2017
Following the Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference held in Brussels on 9-10 March 2017, the Commission and the EESC jointly launched the European circular economy stakeholder platform.

The European circular economy stakeholder platform will be a 'network of networks' going beyond sectorial activities and highlighting cross-sector opportunities and challenges. The Platform will be a hub gathering knowledge on circular economy and a place for dialogue between stakeholders.

It will be structured as follows:

Pillar I: Policy dialogue gathering stakeholders' input and views.

Pillar II: Coordination group for circular economy-related civil society, business and trade union organisations and think-tanks as well as existing, national and regional platforms gathering together civil society, public bodies, business and trade unions active in circular economy.

Pillar III: Website as a virtual venue for dissemination of circular economy-related content such as national strategies and good practices. The website will also feature a dynamic database with contacts, published studies and events relevant to circular economy.

The Commission and the EESC are calling for applications for the selection of existing networks (or similar grouping organisations) as members of the coordination group of the European circular economy stakeholder platform.

Submit expressions of interest through this online application form. The deadline for the submission is 31 August 2017.

Before filling in this form, please carefully read the document 'Aim and structure of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform' and its annex ‘Terms of Reference of the Coordination Group'.
