The project identifies actions that will have high impact on reduction of material and waste flows, resource efficiency as well as generation of new business opportunities and employment in the markets based circular economy as well as economic growth. TRANSCIRC will construct pathways that consist of different future-oriented measures that aim at responding to EU targets more extensively and rapidly than would be required and analyses the impacts of the pathways in order to find the most soluble transition pathways towards circular economy. TRANSCIRC builds on a collaborative approach using quantitative data, statistics, scenarios, material science on material and waste streams, MFA, combined EEIO and economic modelling as well as bottom-up approach together with knowledge co-creation of the potential solutions with administration, business and consumers.
