It is also an opportunity to socialise with other circular economy professionals in Vienna and brainstorm future projects.

What is the Disruptive Innovation Festival?
The Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) is an online platform which aims to shift mindsets and inspire action towards a circular economy.
It invites people to share disruptive ideas and stories on a number of topics and attracts a worldwide audience, sparking critical conversations and participation through a combination of live interviews, films, and podcasts.
DIF Highlights for our event:
4.5 Misconceptions About the Circular Economy: The circular economy as ‘recycling on steroids’ misses out on the most powerful aspects of the vision, and its potential to transform the way our economy works. Here are a few of the most tempting misconceptions to avoid.
System Reset - Shot in London, Amsterdam and Barcelona, System Reset features some of the leading thinkers in materials, economics, the commons movement, FabLabs, digital citizenship, urban planning and architecture to collectively weave a picture of how our economy could operate.
After each film viewing, we will be holding a roundtable discussion, with a strong emphasis on audience participation
