New partnership calls for expressions of interest for projects on circular textiles and garments in developing countries



The aim of this Open Call is to identify pilot projects which could assist the suppliers of EU multinational companies in the Plastic Packaging and the Textiles and Garments value chains to switch to more circular economy approaches and practices.

The Open Call invites EU multinational companies and their suppliers in the two value chains to collaborate with the “SWITCH to Circular Economy Value Chains” partners to gain support that will be made available in the form of capacity development, technical expertise, circular ecosystem development and access to finance.

If you are an EU multinational company working in the Textiles and Garments sector and are interested in submitting an application, please register here.
