Sharing knowledge and experiences is crucial in the transition towards a circular construction sector across Europe. As a way of facilitating this, the CINDERELA project will soon launch an e-learning platform. This platform provides stakeholders in the European construction industry with the skills and competences necessary to implement a Circular Economy Business Model.
CINDERELA Massive Open Online Course
The e-learning platform will include a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with several learning modules related to circular construction. This learning environment will be openly accessible to anyone interested, and allows people to interact with each other and with the CINDERELA experts. Collaboration is facilitated through Q&A forums, chats and guided discussions.
As of now, the CINDERELA MOOC is divided into four consecutive learning modules with different sub-modules. While the project progresses, more modules might be added to enrich the learning process. The course structure is as follows:
Module 1 | Circular construction
- Introduction to the European construction sector
- Valorising waste: a circular approach
- Tools and methods
Module 2 | Circular Economy Business Models
- Introducing CEBM in the construction sector
- Implementing CEBM

Module 3 | Introduction to CinderOSS
