Smart Circuit

Enabling SMARTer, CIRCUlar digITal innovation hubs to enhance Central Europe‘s manufacturing eco-system towards a greener & more competitive future

Manufacturing is an important employer in central Europe. But it is also resource-intensive and produces much waste and emissions, especially in value chains related to the electronics, construction and textiles sectors. The SMART CIRCUIT project extends the scope of existing digital innovation hubs (DIHs) to promote circular economy practices. By connecting these hubs throughout central Europe, the partners increase knowledge on best practices and strengthen capacities for circular manufacturing in their ecosystems.

In SMART CIRCUIT, digitization and future technologies are to help the regions of Central Europe catch up in sustainability technologies and close the gap to the industry leaders.
