moveco - time to say goodbye


After 2.5 years, our INTERREG Danube Transnational Programme project MOVECO comes to an end on August 31st, 2019. It was a truly rewarding experience working with different stakeholders of the circular economy sector. With this seventh and last newsletter, we would like to summarize our work and the results of the project. Further, we would like to thank you all for contributing to the project in so many different ways!


circular toolbox for transitioning to circular economy


This Toolbox has been prepared to deliver extensive information and strategies for businesses to transition towards a circular economy in the Danube region. It shall help to improve the capacity of research and development, business support organizations, public bodies to implement circular economy and to contribute to sustainable economic growth. The Toolbox includes information, collaboration, qualification and financing tools. Many of these tools have been translated into different languages of the Danube region. Please visit the website section Circular Toolbox for detailed information and the tools.



mobile exhibition on circular economy


Our MOVECO team has created a mobile exhibition on "The circular economy in the Danube region". It was travelling across four countries along the Danube region – Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia and Austria. Each country presented circular solutions with regional, national and international best practice examples in the field of circular economy until past June. Please click here to get some impressions of the exhibition.


Transnational strategy and cross-country roadmaps


During the final conference in Linz, Austria, the project consortium presented the Transnational Strategy and cross-country Road Maps for a transition to the circular economy in the Danube region. The Transnational Strategy identifies material streams that are subject to circular economy schemes, whereas the cross-country Road Maps present ways to implement the strategy. Please follow this link to the list of the respective documents in MOVECO’s background and results section.
