On 30 September, the meeting of stakeholders in France was held by Apesa, Pôle Territorial de Coopération Economique.

The sixth and last stakeholders meeting was aimed at discussing the achievements of the RETRACE project as a whole, with particular reference to the presentation of the circular economy action plan in New Aquitaine. Moreover, the meeting was oriented to the introduction of two projects, IKOS, a village of reuse and repair in Bordeaux. Specifically, Ikos project expects the creation of a reuse and recycling ecosystem to reduce waste at source and to promote their reuse or recycling. Additionally, another project for the recovery of organic matter in energy was presented.

The meeting was an excellent chance to explain possible future actions in the perspective to continue the collaboration started with the project RETRACE.
