Circularize ValUe CHains across European Regional Innovation Strategies (C-VoUCHER) aims to generate new value chains with a circular economy approach, combining industrial value chains (agrifood industry, health, marine industry, textile and manufacturing) with enabling technologies.
This project receives funding from the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program of the European Union, and is being executed by a consortium consisting of 13 partners from six different countries (Denmark, France, Spain, Poland, Romania and Sweden), among which the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) is. The Galician Food Cluster (Clusaga) supports GAIN in the dissemination and visibility of the different calls to attract the participation of companies in the Galician food sector.
What does C-VoUCHER offer?
To achieve the objective, C-Voucher will provide economical support to European SMEs and has two types of calls: Circularity Program and Circularity Value Replication Program.
In the Circularity Program, companies design new circularity solutions for 9 months and are awarded checks of up to 60,000 euros and the services of designers in residence and mentors who guide them during the development of the program.
For its part, in the Replication Program of the value chain, SMEs obtain 15,000 euros to create circular viability plans for 3 months.
