KYKLOS 4.0 Final Event

November 30 2023, Brussels

The European Union’s commitment to a Circular Economy is demonstrated by the implementation of the Circular Economy Action Plan and the European Green Deal. KYKLOS 4.0 project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, has demonstrated the efficacy of its Circular Manufacturing approach through the integration of state-of-the-art cyber-physical systems and AI technologies, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and enhanced sustainability.

The KYKLOS 4.0 Final Event aims to showcase the project’s significant achievements, including its impact on reshaping production processes towards sustainability, the introduction of the KYKLOS 4.0 Marketplace, and its successful knowledge transfer initiatives within the EU’s manufacturing landscape.
