This EIT Circular Economy Community consists of six Knowledge and Innovation Communities – or “KICs” – namely EIT RawMaterials, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Digital, EIT Food, EIT Manufacturing and EIT Urban Mobility.

The main goals of the EIT Circular Economy Community are:

- Support the Innovation Communities in developing a joint circular economy offer and to increase their visibility in the circular economy landscape.

- Strengthen collaboration with European Commission services through the implementation of a Circular Economy joint strategy.

- Initiate and strengthen the collaboration with other relevant stakeholders and initiatives in the circular economy landscape.

- Support breakthrough initiatives and start-ups through the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Programme.

- Collaborate with the European Commission in the implementation of the European Circular Economy Action Plan.

- Collaborate with the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform (ECESP) through the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the European Commission (EC).

Pool and create further non-technical knowledge regarding specific aspects affecting the adequate implementation of Circular Economy approaches, as well as facilitating the access to markets for innovative KICs solutions.
