Activities and purpose

The project

EDU-CIRC is an awareness-raising/training programme to promote the long-term potential of the circular economy and decarbonization in production companies. The aim is to qualify young people from vocational and secondary schools, university graduates, teachers as well as specialists from industry and trade in basic principles, methods, instruments and best practice applications and thus close the current educational gap across borders and generations and accelerate the change towards circular and CO2-neutral production. The teaching materials, teaching methods, and education/training measures developed in the project are highly relevant to practice, as they are based on 3 value chains that are important for the Alpine region:

– wood processing

– construction industry

– automotive

After an initial analysis and mapping of the procurement, use, and reuse of materials from the companies, target group-specific teaching materials are created and made openly available on the EDU-CIRC portal. The development and implementation of training and further education offers, circular factory tours and cross-border circularity hackathons round off the initiative.
