This Handbook is the result of work carried out in Work Package 3 in the Interreg South Baltic innovation project, CIRTOINNO. The CIRTOINNO project aims to increase the innovativeness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) within the tourism sector by supporting the integration of circular economy elements into their services, products and business models.

The project results are to be implemented by project partners in the participating South Baltic regions: Pomerania (Poland), Klaipeda (Lithuania), Blekinge and Kalmar (Sweden) and Bornholm (Denmark).

The partners are:

1. Pomerania Development Agency (Pomerania/Poland) – Lead Partner
