Towards Regional
Circular Supply Chains:
Knowledge exchange
from V4 to WB

Project Implementation Ends In:


V4 partners

WB partners


Gathering of good practices, case studies, qualitative data and desk analyses by the researchers. The research will be done on the regional level for Western Balkan countries, identifying the needs, barriers, challenges and opportunities. Systems and initiatives that already existing the Visegrád countries that serve as platforms for collaboration, knowledge sharing, and project implementation, enabling stakeholders to work together towards a more circular supply chain can serve as good practices for the development of a circular economy in the WB region as well.

Two-day Regional Conference will bring together speakers, and guests who will interact in several sessions, including a panel discussion on the social and green economy, lessons fromV4, world café policy dialogues.

Preliminary topics for the conference include:

  • “Local production = regenerative production”
  • “Circular Supply Chains Are Solutions to Waste Management in the Region”
  • “Green Corporate social responsibility (CSR)”
  • “Private-public partnership building in Green Economy and Innovation System”

We will develop the policy briefs for the future of WB alignment and implementation of the European Green Deal (EGD), as well as regional cooperation and joint development of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans (GAWB) with relevant experts from V4 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland). Policy briefs will be produced to inform the policy creators and makers in the region and presented during the regional conference. The research will include mapping of financial instruments that support/block the circular transition, market research, regional business opportunities and the creation of a circular economy road map that can be used further for the development of a software system with data from different suppliers and companies – supported by the good practice from Visegrád Countries.

The campaign will be designed to share the importance of the transition to Circular ways and establishing/transforming to Green Businesses in the CEE region. It will share the good practices from the research in an attractive format, spread awareness of circular business models already at their start-up phase as well as adjust already existing ones, support the claims with the expertise from Visegrád and Western Balkan countries, and therefore contribute to the regional shift towards a more circular economy and the sustainable use of natural resources. In sectors as diverse as plastics, biowaste, food, or textiles and with the strong engagement of both public and business sectors as well as the wide audience that needs to be trained and educated to be more consumption conscious and waste-management aware.
