Negotiated procedure - Foresight study on the circular economy and its effect on OSH – Phase 2: Dissemination and tailoring of Phase 1 scenarios via stakeholder dialogue and workshops (EUOSHA/2021/NE/D/SE/0158)

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is planning to launch in the forthcoming week a middle value negotiated procedure for the provision of phase 2 of the foresight on circular economy and its effect on OSH.

Main objectives / services provided for under the contract:

The first phase of EU-OSHA’s foresight project on the Circular Economy in 2020/2021 has produced a set of macro-scenarios to explore the effect that implementing a circular economy (CE) would have on OSH. As a result, four scenarios looking at Europe in 2040 were developed.

The objective of this second phase is the dissemination and tailoring of the macro- scenarios via stakeholder dialogue and workshops with the aim to strengthen and maximize the impact of this third foresight study on the circular economy and its effects on OSH.

The tasks will include the:

  • Content preparation, implementation and reporting on 4 physical and/or virtual workshops, including an inventory of key workshop target groups and audiences
  • Production of four sets of tailored, micro-scenarios, as well as a final overview analysis of the scenarios produced and results from stakeholders’ engagement, and of the implications for OSH.
