Most organisations today operate in a linear way; this model functions as though there are infinite resources and generates waste. A circular economy, on the other hand, treats resources as though they are finite and is based on a ‘make, use and return’ model. Each resource is used in a way that maximises value to the economy and minimises damage to the environment. This Circular Economy’ Kick Start offers 75% funding of up to 60,000 EUR for teams to explore the technical and commercial feasibility of a new service for the circular economy. Proposed services can address one of the following topics: circular food and drinks, circular fashion and textiles, circular urban life, or circular waste systems. The services put forward must use at least one type of space asset, such as Earth observation, Satellite Communication, or Satellite Navigation technology. The Kick Start is divided into four parts, each with its own deadline.
