State of the Art in Design and Procurement for the Circular Economy

Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR) works with leading global and indigenous brands to de-risk and demystify new and emerging technologies as well as delivering high-impact collaborative research. IMR also deliver CIRCULÉIRE, the national platform for circular manufacturing in Ireland.

M-CO were commissioned by IMR and CIRCULÉIRE to provide strategic input and guidance for a “state of the art” review report on the topic of circular procurement. This involved M-CO reviewing draft reports and advising on the direction, content and scope of the final report.

IMR have now commissioned M-CO to design and deliver a series of ideation workshops with Irish industry and to produce a state of the art review report on the topic of circular design. These ideation workshops will assist companies to develop circular design concepts they can put forward for funding through CIRCULÉIRE and Enterprise Ireland.
