Event Details

Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting a briefing event for Innovate UK’s new innovation competition, Plastics Innovation: towards zero waste, which opens for applications on 18th June.

Competition details

Innovate UK is to invest up to £4 million to support innovation with the potential to deliver circular economy approaches to plastic use (including for polymer-based textiles and elastomers). 

This could include:

  • developing new polymer materials
  • new product designs
  • new recycling processes
  • increasing the value of recycled polymer
  • behaviour focussed innovation to reduce plastic waste


Projects should describe how they aim to reduce plastic waste going to landfill or the wider environment.

This event will provide further details and scope about the competition to potential applicants.
