Editorial of the 11th ECLAIRA newsletter: Bringing nature into the centre of innovation
Produced by CIRIDD with support from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, ECLAIRA's eleventh newsletter is entitled “Bringing nature into the centre of innovation”
The Rencontres de l’économie circulaire were attended by over 200 professionals at the Region’s offices in Lyon in early June. In addition to the high attendance, the goal of making this day a business and networking meeting was a success. Project promoters, and competitiveness clusters demonstrated their commitment to the circular economy their ability to innovate and create value in their companies and regions.
Three years after the launch of the ECLAIRA network in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the CIRIDD team is proud of this momentum.
What had been announced became a reality as the regional assembly voted a major investment plan a few weeks later, pointing to waste and the circular economy as one of the five components of the action plan. The planets are lined up!
As the time comes to invest, let's go back to basics: Nature. What does it teach us, what does it reveal to us if we take the time to understand it? How can we draw on natural ecosystems to implement these technical and organizational initiatives, and these so “flourishing” business and models?
This newsletter shows the link between biomimicry and the circular economy. We can see in this relationship a pool of opportunities to mobilize complementary disciplines, open horizons of collaboration and set a new course.
