Recycling Business Models (RBM)

Recycling Business Models

The main purpose of the project Recycling Business Models – RBM is to investigate and analyse the possibility to transform traditional science and technology parks in more sustainable areas, with circular systems where waste from one company provides the raw material or energy for another.


The project will develop a methodology and a specific strategy to impulse especially the creation of new business opportunities for SMEs and the creation of new companies, based on the revalorisation of waste, equipment and its reincorporation in the life cycle of the companies located in science and technology parks. More than 80% of the companies located within technology park in Europe are SMEs, which create the majority of new jobs in the economy of these countries.

Recycling Business Models (RBM) is a project within INNOSUP - Peer learning of innovation agencies, under EU:s Horizon 2020. It has a budget of €50,000 during the period October 2019 until September 2020. Project leader is Spanish Parque Tecnologico de Andalucia and project partners are Johanneberg Science Park in Sweden and Parque do Alentejo de Ciência e Tecnologia in Portugal.
