EcoCEO, bringing together state-of-the-art research from across Europe

EcoCEO and its supporting materials were developed in a collaboration between the following European Research Institutes.

VITO is a leading European independent research and technology organization in the areas of cleantech and sustainable development, elaborating solutions for the large societal challenges of today. Based on a long-standing expertise in the field of waste and materials management, VITO is a leading knowledge center on circular economy and sustainability assessment.

The National Research Council (CNR) is the largest public Research Institution in Italy. CNR is distributed all over Italy and leads several breakthrough research activities in many fields, including the substitution of metals and conventional fossil-based materials by renewable carbon and bio-based innovative materials. CNR has long experience in collaborating with schools. 

The Wuppertal Institute is a leading German research institute that develops models, strategies and instruments to support sustainable development at regional, national and international level. Its sustainability research focuses on resource, climate and energy-related challenges and their relation to economy and society. Special emphasis is put on analysing and stimulating innovations that decouple economic growth and wealth from the use of natural resources. The institute has long-standing experience working with schools in the field of education for sustainable development.

Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ), is the leading engineering R&D institution in Estonia. The mission of TTÜ is to support Estonia’s sustainable development through R&D and science-based higher education in the fields of engineering, technology and natural and social sciences. In addition to research, TTÜ harbours the Mektory School of Technology where primary and secondary school students can experience the exiting opportunities of science, technology and innovation.
