Breaking the Barriers in a Circular Economy - conference in Oslo

Croatian SMEs and research institutions in the sector of circular economy are invited to matchmaking in Oslo for potential partnership projects under the Norwegian-Croatian business programme. Register and get travel costs covered.

Why register?
22 million EUR is available for Norwegian-Croatian business partnership projects. This event will inform about these funding opportunities and serve as a platform to match with potential Norwegian project partners via speed-dating.

Who should register?
Croatian companies (SMEs) looking for funding and Norwegian partners to realise a concrete project idea* linked to innovative technology, solutions and/or products in circular economy:

  • Reducing material and resource inputs
  • Maintaining the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible
  • Minimising the generation of waste
  • Replacing non-renewable resources with biomass
  • protecting oceans and land from waste and litter by remediating existing concentrates, mitigating new pollution and developing biodegradable bio plastics

* Note that applicants not able to present concrete project ideas will be rejected.


How does the matchmaking work?
At a matchmaking event, people meet and greet at high speed. Bilateral meetings take usually 20 to 30 minutes. Each participant registers with a cooperation profile which will be displayed at the event website. Each participant can online select meetings with other participants they would like to personally talk to. A few days before the event, each participant will receive a meeting schedule showing WHOM you will meet, WHEN and WHERE.
