Waste is a hot topic – 170 people registered to attend the Innovate UK and KTN Information and Brokerage Event for the Innovate UK and EPSRC Recovering Valuable Materials from Waste Event. The whole supply chain including designers, collectors, reprocessors and manufacturers was represented, making new connections and building strong collaborations.
Innovate UK provided detailed guidance on the competition and how to apply; a video recording of their presentations is now available.
A panel of leaders in the field including Veolia, Suez and Re:Sourcing UK gave their perspective on the challenges and opportunities for the sector. Previous competition winners Axion Polymers and Valueform gave shrewd insights on how to apply and deliver a successful project and the KTN provided advice on how to develop a strong proposal and the support available. All the presentations can be downloaded here.
Networking does not stop after the event – if you are still looking for collaborators then join the competition group to participate in the discussion board.
As your ideas progress, please get in touch. The KTN can provide free support with partner searching, support tools and reviewing your proposal.
