Announcement by the Cyprus Organization for Standardization regarding the Design for Circular Construction Workshop

The second Workshop of the Social Experiment on Circular Economy in Construction and Buildings by the Cyprus Organization for Standardization (CYS) successfully took place on January 23rd.

The workshop was attended by stakeholders representing the construction industry, competent authorities and academia/ research.

The workshop is based on the outcomes of the first workshop, which stated the overall challenge the industry is facing towards transitioning to a circular model. Applying an interactive process and a methodology of value proposition canvas, CYS seeks to draft three different value propositions that could support overcoming constraints and barriers, as well as incentivising or facilitating the aspects of legislation/policy, market and collaboration.

The outcomes of the workshop will be assessed against five criteria: innovation, circularity, collaboration, inclusivity, feasibility, ranked accordingly. The three value propositions will be presented for comments and validation to a wider audience during the 3rd workshop and the preferable solution will be awarded.

The partners and stakeholders who took part at the workshop made the event a huge success, by actively sharing their knowhow, thoughts and enthusiasm.

CYS shares its gratitude to all participants for their support.
