Circular Economy Innovation Communities (CEIC) is a fully funded project led by practitioners with many years of collective experience that provides public sector organisations in the Cardiff Capital and Swansea Bay regions with the knowledge, skills, experience and ideal environment to collaboratively identify and solve common challenges.  Our approach encourages participants to view the challenges through a circular economy lens – how can we implement solutions that are resource-efficient, resilient and low-carbon by design?  The project comprises 14 programmes, each run over 10 months that include a blend of virtual and in-person workshops, site visits, action learning and expert support activities. There will be seven held in Swansea University and seven in Cardiff Metropolitan University, which will run through until 2023.
