The ESSENCE project has the ambition of improving business making in the circular economy field, mainly by dealing with three key improvement in skills:
- Entrepreneurial skills to seize the opportunities of circular economy processes, focused on the waste usage sector
- Management skills to ensure preparation to deal with adaptation and changes in the phases of re-directing the classical economy model toward a green/circular/sustainable integrated system
- Core skills such as ability to learn and to innovate.
This means empowering the trainers of future entrepreneurs and enhancing the knowledge of policy makers by supplying support material for policy-makers will be the main ways of the project, hoping to promote a new paradigm shift in these markets.
