  1. Circularity Optimisation: Optimising circularity within projects to maximise resource efficiency and sustainability.
  2. Fundraising: Assisting project promoters in securing necessary funding and investments for their initiatives.
  3. Business Plan Development: Developing robust business plans that outline project objectives, strategies, and financial forecasts.

The initiative is currently calling for experts in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) strategy development and review, European and Norwegian food waste regulation, and business planning. Eligible experts should possess proven expertise in relevant fields, a solid understanding of Circular Economy projects, fluency in English, and remote availability.
