Promoting Circular Economy in the Food Supply Chain “ProCEedS” is a research project funded by Horizon 2020 EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange and will support the implementation of the European Commission’s Circular Economy strategy in the field of the Supply Chain Management.

As stated by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) , the CE paradigm can play a pivotal role in order to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The proposed research project will attempt to contribute to the existing fields of both Circular Economy theory and Supply Chain Management by providing insights related to the actual applicability of the CE paradigm in agri-food supply chains within free-market contexts. Focus is placed on the examination and involvement of stakeholders covering all stages from primary production to the point of regenerating biological nutrients and redirecting them back to agricultural production.
