The main aim of the project is to promote the “circular entrepreneurial model” to young scientists and engineers in the Cross-Border area of the project, through support for the development of innovative business plans.

The project aims to assist young entrepreneurs through the establishment of new structures, “ENGINE-HUBs”, which will operate as training and information centers for potential and existing entrepreneurs in the field of Circular Economy. In the framework of this project, trainings and consulting seminars are going to be implemented, full and open access to material and information will be provided, which is useful for the development of business plans by the beneficiaries of the project.

The main objective is the establishment of new businesses, which can be operational if possible before or two (2) years (maximum) after the end of the project.

In total, four (4) ENGINE-HUBs will be established, two (2) in each country. The Hubs will operate as a “one-stop-shop” providing incentives, trainings, consulting services, hosting space and other support services to new entrepreneurs, while connecting new businesses to the market.
