Vaso will work with SMEs to understand business challenges, identify the circular economy opportunities and help identify & influence business project creation and development.

She will also bring learnings from other Circular Economy success stories across Scotland and beyond to develop innovative thinking and projects from key sectors in our region, while being mindful of wider opportunities that will attract support from Zero Waste Scotland.
