Are you interested in commercialising your food waste valorisation ideas?

Pathways to commercialisation, Manchester Conference Centre, 1-2 March 2016

This free-of-charge meeting is aimed at academic and industry-based FoodWasteNet* members with an interest in commercialising food waste valorisation ideas. Invited speakers from academia and industry will focus on three main themes:

  • Basic tools for commercialisation (funding & IP)
  • Building the business (starting-up and developing business activities)
  • Creating value from waste (socio-economic drivers in food waste valorisation, developing R&D projects, use of waste & co-product derived chemicals in fast moving consumer goods)

The meeting will also showcase some of the FoodWasteNet Business Innovation Voucher (BIV) and Proof of Concept (PoC) projects from 2014/15. The second day will include a networking market place with opportunities to explore themes in greater detail or develop collaborations.

A draft programme is available to download. Register for this event via the online booking form.

Registration closes 25 January 2016.
