• The project built the first European-wide SME knowledge-exchange platform on a green economy.
• The platform combines an online hub, including a searchable database of good practices, case studies and tools, with a series of in-person dialogues and workshops.
• The barriers and enablers to the implementation of circular economy business models in different value chains were assessed during the project. Project provided policy recommendations on the basis of this analysis.
