On April 2018, 11th and 12th, SYMBI project staff from FUNDECYT PCTEX took part in the visit of representatives from European Commission for the development of a project aimed to advising and training SMEs to promote productive circular economy models. It should be noted that the European Commission has selected Extremadura regional government as one of the six regions that will develop this project to boost the circular economy among regional SMEs.
This program is aimed to offer policy advice through reports, including regional policy recommendations, detailed action plans and roadmaps for guiding SMEs to adopt resource efficiency strategies and practices, eco-innovation and/or circular economy.
Specifically, FUNDECYT PCTEX organised the visit related to several SYMBI regional stakeholders, as recycling and use of by-product companies and regional research groups specialized in the use of biomass and renewable energies.
