Full circular design, business and technology

  • Wanderful.Stream maps out residual flows of SMEs in the Euregion and wants to valorise them with the help of designers, technologists and business developers.
  • Wanderful.stream is interdisciplinary and Euregional. As an Interreg project in the Meuse-Rhine Euroregion, it drives small and medium-sized enterprises towards a more circular economy. It crosses the borders between disciplines and regions and initiates new collaborations.  
  • The name ‘stream’ does not only refer to residual streams. It also refers to important spearheads within education. The international acronym S T E M refers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and adds an extra discipline with Arts. It is this S T E A M that drives the search for new products and business models. 
  • Wanderful.stream is a catalyst for new circular models and products. It is driven by eight partner organisations active in Belgian and Dutch Limburg, Wallonia and the German region of Aachen. 

GOAL

  • Wanderful.Stream aims to coach and guide small and medium enterprises free of charge in the transition to a more circular economy. 
  • It wants to point out the added value of interdisciplinary cooperation across the borders of the Euregio and of different business sectors.
  • Wanderful.stream wants to stimulate interdisciplinary crossovers around residual flows and make them tangible by developing 40 prototypes of innovative products

How

  • Mapping out challenges, needs and opportunities for the circular economy in the Meuse-Rhine Euroregion. Literally and figuratively by means of online tools, but also with community events. .
  • Visualizing the residual flows or materials in order to better match supply and demand.  Do you, or your company, have (an interest in) a certain waste stream? Let us know now, because it may become a raw material for new products or spark dust for new ideas. 
  • Residual flows or materials will be valorised together with technologists, designers and business developers. This will create new ideas, opportunities and applications. 
  • Organizing network and community events around different themes, topics or disciplines. From inspiration to co-creative bootcamps and workshops. Keep an eye on our calendar.
