About CERCOM

CERCOM is a CEDR project funded through the Call 2020 Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy funded by Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The CERCOM project is developing an innovative risk based framework and management tool to facilitate a step change in the adoption of RE & CE principles in procurement and multi-lifecycle management by NRAs across Europe. 

Implementation of CE has the potential to tackle the root causes of global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution whilst at the same time providing regenerative design for generations to come.

Our Team

CERCOM brings together leading European researchers, academics, engineers and consultants, who are well placed to deliver on the objectives of resource efficiency and circular economy.

The CEDR Transnational Research Programme (TRP) operates through a series of annual transnational calls on topics that address the needs of European road authorities.

To address some of the challenges associated with improving resource efficiency (RE) and transforming to a circular economy, the Conference of European Road Directors (CEDR) launched a Transnational Road Research Programme Call 2020, managed by the Danish Road Directorate.
