Circular economy
Are you in the process of a circular shift or planning one in the near future? I’d be very happy to guide you through one or more steps. From optimising your raw material supply chain and waste management all the way to (re)positioning your products or services, we’ll find the most effective strategies to make your circular shift successful. Let’s talk.

I am a jack-of-all-trades: researcher, R&D manager, spin-off support, business developer, CEO for innovative SMEs at different maturity levels (from spin-offs to mature companies) and active in different sectors (automotive, energy storage, industrial packaging…). I joined Sirris in 2021 as a Circular Economy Project Leader and I now support Belgian companies in their journey to the circular economy thanks to organisational, behavioural and technological innovations.
