It is therefore essential to encourage and stimulate innovation using all the stakeholders in the innovation chain; to disseminate it to beneficiary businesses and the promoters of innovative circular economy products and concepts; and to encourage the development of new forms of organisation and support new types of stakeholder.

This must be done through the coordination of field and research actors; the development of a specific innovation program in circular economy; the coordination of a circular economy watch and the implementation of actions related to the prospective studies.
