C-VoUCHER is an EU funded project that aims at helping European SMEs create innovative business models with circular economy approach by combining design and technology in their value chains and will distribute up €696K in the form innovation vouchers among circular economy projects undertaken by SME.

These vouchers will be used to get support services by technology disruptors, which are entities (such as Research and Technology Organizations -RTOs- and Disruptive SMEs) bringing enabling technologies to SMEs and helping them to develop the Technology Readiness Level (probably from TRL 5/6 to TRL 7-9), in order to boost their transition from linear towards circular economy.
