About the network


The Circular Investment Readiness Network is a joint initiative by CircularInvest and DEFINITE-CCRI. Both projects are funded under the Horizon Europe Programme to assist the Circular Cities and Regions Initiative in advancing the circular economy in Europe. Through Project Development Assistance (PDA) and guidance, CircularInvest and DEFINITE-CCRI aim to support circular economy projects in securing vital investments.

What's there for me?


By joining the Circular Investment Readiness Network you will: 

  • Exchange knowledge with other European cities, circular stakeholders and projects to find potential solutions to common challenges on circular project development and financing. 
  • Develop the know-how to implement financeable high-impact, low-risk circular projects. We will address topics like business models, financial requirements, due diligence, pitching to investors, and much more.
  • Be part of a collaborative space where cities and organisations can network, build partnerships, and explore potential synergies.

Who can benefit

The Circular Investment Readiness Network is designed to engage and benefit a diverse range of stakeholders committed to implementing successful circular projects, including:  

  • Local and regional governments interested in applying and/or developing circular solutions
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) developing circular products or services
  • Investors eager to finance circular projects
  • Project Development Assistance (PDA) providers wanting to share their learnings and experience
  • Service providers desiring to promote their services, learn from the ground and connect with other European initiatives


Join us for a series of engaging sessions that will span from November 2023 to October 2026. Our inaugural session will take place online in November 2023, followed by sessions held on a quarterly basis.
