We bring circularity to the furniture industry

Started on December 1st, 2020, under ERASMUS+ program, INFURI Project is developed to help the furniture industry in the implementation of the Circular Economy Action Plan. The transition from linear to circular requires significant changes at micro, meso and macro levels, from innovation at the business model and value chain levels to the introduction of new technologies.

The applicant of the project is Wittenborg University – Netherlands, and the 8 partners of the INFURI project are:

Main Goals:

  • The project outputs create networking opportunities that will facilitate the development of a strong ecosystem on circularity WORLD OF BUSINESS (companies from other sectors, industry representatives, incubators and business intermediary organizations);
  • Working in the field of circularity and related products and processes, means working on new innovation potentials able to contribute to companies’ competitive advantage on the market.
  • The industry representatives, incubators and business intermediary organizations can use the project’s outcomes for the continuous support of its associated or incubated companies in order to ensure the sustainability of their entrepreneurial projects in the field of circularity and/or to increase the innovation potentials of their approaches to circularity;
  • Companies from other sectors will increase their knowledge about green procurement and disposal of furniture; they will be able to choose more environmentally friendly furniture products and decrease their environmental impact.
INFURI impact the macro level, giving new boost to jobs, growth and investment by promoting a carbon neutral, resource-efficient and competitive economy. The project will complement the Circular Economy Action Plan approved by the European Commission, whose Monitoring Framework (2018) shows that the transition helps to put the EU back on a path of job creation.

The project outcomes are perfectly in line with the strategic indications of the EU and countries involved and, - complementary to initiatives undertaken at the European level regarding the need to develop the Action Plan on circular economy.


INFURI project produces concrete and transferable results (or intellectual outputs), which can be exploited even after the project conclusion, both by partners than other stakeholders.

Apart from being available online in both Erasmus Plus Project Results Platform and Project Website during and after the lifetime of the project, public results will be placed in an online storage and at disposal of all the partners.

Virtual Campus, the project's technical partner, will sustain the project's digital environment for three years, in order to ensure its continuity and life beyond the funding period. The website will host the final version of all the project outputs which could be freely downloaded by external stakeholders.
