Plastics Circularity Multiplier

The initiative seeks to improve value chain collaboration and create cross cooperation between EU Projects.

Twenty one innovation projects joined forces to boost European Union efforts towards a circular economy for plastics.

In 2019-2020 the initiative aims at showcasing the synergies of EU-funded projects in the field of plastic circularity and coordinating communication and dissemination activities. 


Other scopes of collaboration related to the common challenges and needs for the successful implementation of a Plastics Circular Economy could be further defined as from September 2020.

The initiative

More than 300 projects dealing with plastics in a circular economy have been supported by the FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes – part of the EU’s more global push to invest in circular economy solutions to achieve the goals of the 2018 EU Plastics Strategy.

Plastics Circular Multiplier was set up in 2019 to pool resources and expertise and “multiply” key messages from the ecosystem of projects that receive funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

More information

The initiative aims to complement existing resources set up by the EU institutions, designed to engender a veritable ecosystem of EU investments in circular economy and innovation

European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform



In the framework of the DEMETO EU project (GA no. 768573), several projects have been invited to explore the common synergies of the ongoing European Projects on Plastics Circularity. 

The initiative is meant to be one of the measurable results of DEMETO which envisages the identification of relevant projects for clustering. 


The initiative is managed by EuPC (European Plastics Converters), as Communication and Dissemination Work Package leader of DEMETO, with the collaboration of other participants in the PCM.
