KTN and Innovate UK had a busy week at Resource & Ecobuild 2015. Resource event boasts innovation, learning, solutions and collaboration for businesses looking to improve resource efficiency and adopt circular economy models and is co-located with Ecobuild - the sustainable construction event. KTN and Innovate UK were there in force to meet businesses, launch competitions and provide support and networking to those with ideas ripe for exploitation.
Over 25 staff representing the KTN and Innovate UK across a range of technology areas, as well as colleagues from the High Value Manufacturing Catapult were on hand on the stand to provide information, advice and tailored networking support to visitors to the stand. The stand acted as a connection hub for the event, with over 85 meetings were requested using our online partnering service. Our networking wall was a real hive activity as delegates sought to find partners and promote what they had to offer.
Away from the stand, we also held two workshops launching Innovate UK competitions: Circular economy: business models and Building whole-life performance.
Innovate UK Circular economy: business models competition - presentations now available
Innovate UK Building whole-life performance competition
We are working on digitising the submissions to our networking wall, which will soon be available for you to browse at your leisure.
