A replicable systemic approach towards a transition to Circular Economy in EU regions

QUESTIONNAIRE on the assessment criteria for circular economy projects

The SCREEN Policy Lab also deals with a common agreement on a specific set of "evaluation criteria for circular economy projects". Even if each regional authority managing structural funds already has its own assessment criteria for the evaluation and selection of projects, specific criteria for circular economy projects are still missing. The criteria to be defined are therefore the additional ones to be used for the sole purpose of evaluating the "circularity" of one project respect to another one and help the evaluators to make a clear and transparent ranking list.

Since the proposed criteria should be "user friendly" for both proposers and evaluators, SCREEN needs to collect feedbacks from external stakeholders, particularly from those expected to apply for regional funding.

Your opinion is therefore important and will have an influence on the definition of the final set of criteria that will be used by the SCREEN regions.
Such a set, in its final version, will be also proposed to other European Regions and to the European Commission, for its adoption as additional criteria on European funded projects.

Please read the draft table of assessment criteria for circular economy projects and its explanatory notes, then

fill-in the on-line questionnaire HERE.

The questionnaire remains open until the 11th of May 2018
; results will be discussed during the next SCREEN Policy lab in Brussels on 30th of May 2018.

Please note: The European Commission issued on 16th of January 2018 a Communication "on a monitoring framework for the circular economy" (link to the document on the right column), containing 10 indicators selected to capture the main elements of a circular economy.
Although SCREEN has worked in a completely independent and separate way from the Commission's team, there is a quite good correspondence between the 10 indicators and the assessment criteria proposed for the projects, as shown in the third table on the right column.
