In order to lay the foundation for a circular economy by 2020, in which materials rotate in smart closed cycles, the Flanders' Materials Programme focuses on closing materials cycles in four 'economic clusters' and on five 'enablers'.
Economic clusters, chosen for their potential from a primary resources and materials perspective and because of the existing expertise within these domains in Flanders.
Enablers, chosen to avoid that every leverage project, every business case, every innovation encounters the same obstacles.
For each cluster and each enabler five priority actions were put forward. Agenda 2020 indicates what concrete steps we are taking today to realise our ambition for 2020.
