The .eu Web Awards, which are hosted by EURid, highlight and celebrate the most effective and impactful .eu websites. The finalists have been invited to attend the .eu Web Awards ceremony in Mechelen, Belgium on 17 November 2022, when the winners will be announced.

The CityLoops project brings together seven European cities – Apeldoorn, Bodø, Mikkeli, Porto, Seville, Høje-Taastrup and Roskilde - to pilot a series of demonstration actions to close the loop of two of the most important waste streams in Europe: Construction and Demolition Waste, and Bio-waste. Their ultimate aim is to become circular cities in which no resource goes to waste, driving the transition to the circular economy. The CityLoops website is the main hub to learn about the project and its goals, the CityLoops cities and their demonstration actions, the resources produced as part of this journey, and further information on circularity in cities.
