The acknowledgement of the policies and regulations implemented in more advanced (Netherlands) or similar countries (Estonia and Czech Republic) are useful to shed light on the solution possibilities that could trigger the industrial symbiosis strategy within the CE roadmap defined by the Lithuanian industry.

However, it is important to resist the temptation to replicate the strategies for fostering industrial symbiosis adopted by other countries, in the attempt of quick success, because it usually leads to adoption failures.

A systemic and participatory approach by all the implicated stakeholders is relevant to create a shared understanding of the concept of CE and its implementation, existing gaps, and potential drivers to enable synergies and to avoid trade-offs.

Comparative analysis also help to test solutions that cross sectors (such as data governance tools and their use in communicating the state of affairs).
