    Hello everyone!

    If you would like to be part of a very exciting base formation of circular economy in Western Balkans, we dearly invite you to join us!


    CirEkon and Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia are organizing a longer format training focused on small and medium enterprises in 4 different industries in Serbia - The Academy for Circular Economy. We have opened the call for trainers. While details are available in the field below, I would like to point out that this is a non-for-profit project and the daily rate and total quote is suggested to be based on market standards in Serbia (approx 1/3 to 1/4 of a typical EU standard). Also, please note that the same call was distributed on a local market. Travel expenses are fully covered, so you shouldn't quote them in your offers.

    From a personal experience, I can tell that the atmosphere and the quality of delivery that we managed to create last year was something unique and all trainers very much wished to participate again. The organization team is very dedicated and puts an extra effort to bring the culture to all guests, so the experience goes beyond pure professionalism.


    The call is opened until 24th of July 2019.


    I am here to answer all your questions.

    Cheers and see you soon!
    Milan, Serbia,

    CirEkon Founder
