Business models competition: Retaining value in durable goods through a circular economy

Innovate UK is to invest up to £800k in feasibility studies into the business case for retaining value in durable goods through reuse, remanufacture or leasing/maintenance.

Projects should explore commercial models for a circular economy of goods in which resources are kept in productive use for longer following primary production – ideally at the same value/use. Projects will be expected to design a pilot to demonstrate how the model could become part of normal business.  Click here to see full details of the competition scope.

The deadline for applications is 15th April 2015.
