The CircThread project, “Building the Digital Thread for Circular Economy Product, Resource & Service Management” based on the circular economy of products and resources.


CircThread’s main objective is to unlock access to product data and leverage it as information for decision making by all actors involved in the product life cycle, accelerating circularity and reducing carbon emissions.

CircThread will provide a methodology and framework to facilitate the exchange of information flows, governed by secure and reliable management standards, along the extended life cycle chain of products, components, their materials and chemicals, and information related to circularity, environment, society and economy.

The project will create a data system on a cloud-based platform and will be implemented in 3 demonstration clusters in Italy, Slovenia and Spain, spread over the entire life cycle chain of household appliances (including washing machines and dishwashers) and energy systems (including boilers, photovoltaic systems and batteries) to test 7 circularity use cases and associated business models.

CircThread is funded by the EU under the “H2020-LOW-CARBON-CIRCULAR-INDUSTRIES-2020” call of the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 programme under Grant Agreement No. 958448
