Join CENSIS for a catch up over a virtual coffee and connect with companies, researchers and stakeholders with an interest in the same space.

There is no fixed agenda for any of our virtual coffees, and we aim for forum that is open, friendly and encourages conversation. The direction of the discussion always follows whatever people on the call want to talk about, and the conversations are never recorded.

Led by CENSIS Business Development Manager, Natalia Łukaszewicz, this coffee break will explore the EU Digital Product Passport (DPP), a tool designed to create transparency and support the circular economy by sharing information about a product across its entire lifecycle and the entire value chain, including data on raw material extraction, production, recycling, etc.

We are pleased to be joined for this discussion by:

  • Ilias Iakovidis, Adviser at the EU Commission for Digital Aspects of Green Transformation
  • Rik Bhattacharya, Head of Advisory Board at Protokol (an Amsterdam-based Web3 Solution Provider)
  • Andres Alcayaga, Senior Researcher at the Wuppertal Institute, Division Circular Economy

Potential topics for discussion might include:

  • who will need to implement DPPs
  • who will benefit from DPP
  • what information will be included in a DPP
  • the timeline of DPPs
  • the technicalities of implementation
  • verifying compliance and legal obligations
  • cyber security aspects – data storage and encryption
  • gaining a competitive edge with DPPs


The discussion takes place over Zoom. Please register via Eventbrite.
