    • Training, prototyping and pilot testing with user feedback to enable circular products and business models for alpine outdoor textiles and plastics with minimal waste generation.

      Collaborative prototyping based on CE-principles (5R) strengthen the skills of companies in developing circular outdoor-textiles and business models and minimize waste. Testing products and new service designs under real world conditions in alpine regions gains valuable insights into customer behaviour and the feasibility for upscaling. Companies benefit from collaboration, training, scientific monitoring and recycling tests. Prototypes serve as blueprints for methodology and future applications

    • Improved implementation of 5R strategies for textile and plastic products and enhanced circularity in outdoor products

      Recommendations will be provided to public authorities regarding polymer waste-related policies and regulations. Industry and 5R solution providers will be connected, technical assessment and business model propositions will be transfered to business stakeholder based on the aggregated knowledge of the project, the pilot actions and the mapping activities. In the long term, this will provide precious indications to establish sustainable Alpine value chains in the industry.

    • Long-term adoption of sustainable practices, and development of circular Alpine products through training materials

      PPs will develop training materials which will be created from the knowledge built in WP1 and WP2. In the form of a MOOC and/or written documents, the training materials will be shared with educational and training organisations to transfer the knowledge to the current and future generations of students and employees.

    • Target-specific dissemination activities for transferability and solution adoption

      Specific activities will be organised in each rinvolved region to facilitate the dissemination of results, which will also rely on the involvement of observers (including public authorities to reach the general pulic, companies, business support organisations) and the support from their network. It will include targeted thematic events in regions (4), clustering with EUSALP AGs and EUSALP Youth Council (1) and public authorities (1), as well as observers, networks, projects like AlpTextyles.
