The CERES – Circular innovation Ecosystem REdesigning Skills project aims to educate on circular economy issues. The project funded by the Erasmus+ programme has ten international partners including universities, EPR consortia and associations, whose objective is to support the ecological and economic transition of the production system, in particular in various business sectors such as e-waste, automotive, textiles, windmill, through education on the circular economy model and the main issues related to its real development in society: digitisation, entrepreneurship, business model, etc.

In particular, the CERES project aims to promote corporate social responsibility, raise awareness, stimulate entrepreneurial mindsets, improve skills, facilitate collaboration, and strengthen higher education and vocational training systems to support the ecological transition of the production system. In this context, CERES’ innovation ecosystem, the Circular Economy Digital Innovation Hub (CE-DIH), is aimed to promote connectedness among the stakeholders and to generate a set of services, skills, competences and knowledge able to support the multifaceted circular economy domain.

WEEE Forum members, Erion and REPIC will play an important role in this project and will engage with the rest of the WEEE Forum membership to see how best new training can also meet their needs.

Thanks to its long-standing experience in the business sector, Erion will analyse market needs, providing data of real problems taken from case studies. Furthermore, it will contribute to the mapping and promotion of good practices of circular economy. In this project Erion is the leader of work package one, whose goal is investigating circular economy markets and resilience needs in terms of competences and skills in Europe and in partners’ countries, to develop an analysis providing key facts and insights as well as recommendations for the development of circular economy education.

REPIC will be investigating the market for circular economy skills and training in the UK, focussed on WEEE. They will also work with British partners to ensure the courses and training developed meet the market’s needs and have wide uptake.


The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association representing 51 producer responsibility organisations across the globe. Together with our members, we are at the forefront of turning the extended producer responsibility principle into an effective electronic waste management policy approach through our combined knowledge of the technical, business and operational aspects of collection, logistics, de-pollution, processing, preparing for reuse and reporting of e-waste. Our mission is to be the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre excelling in the implementation of the circularity principle.
