Advice and training to the techincal team of the Municipalities of Gavà and Viladecans, in collaboration with the Center of Suport to the Company of Gavà, in order to detect opportunities of use of resources between companies of the zone. While the initial phase of the project has focused on the training of technicians in circular economy and on the detection of possible synergies between companies, the intention is to go much further.

During the development of the project, 9 training sessions were carried out with the technicians of the City Council and 4 sessions with companies. Through different dynamics the areas of interest were detected, from which the potential synergies arose, gathered in an asset mapping matrix. More than 60 companies in the area participated actively in the sessions, of which they have detected almost 80 potential synergies and business opportunities.

Throughout the whole process, the ReSOLVE methodology (Ellen MacArthur Foundation) has been applied in coherence with the actions carried out by different organizations within the framework of the commitment of the Generalitat de Catalunya for the transition towards the Circular Economy.
