The shift towards a circular economy requires considerable political will. Fortunately, both the national and EU Covid-19 recovery packages offer a way to accelerate this shift. A dynamic and coordinated circular economy research and innovation approach across EU member states will form one pillar of this transition. Technical and societal challenges also demand economies of scale and impact. It is the mission of the Circular Economy Platform for the European Priorities Strategic Agenda (CICERONE) H2020 project to propose solutions to all these challenges.

This paper is addressed to policymakers and presents the key policies and actions required to further develop, along with stakeholders, a roadmap for a successful European circular economy.
