Event description

Description

The Circular Economy is a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Many organisations are recognising that they need to adopt the transition towards a circular economy.

The Sustainable Technologies Business Acceleration Hub are running a series of events with the aim to stimulate a regional conversation about how we can achieve the 3 principles of a sustainable economy bringing the voices of academics, funders, innovators, SMEs and corporates to the debate.

If you are an SME or start-up interested in biologial cycles; renewable resources or using renewable feedstocks then this event is for you!

You may have a product or service in one of these areas or may simply be curious about how you get your business ‘in shape’ to contribute to a sustainable economy?

There will be keynote talks, followed by flash presentations from SMEs innovating in new food models, and then a panel discussion, rounded off with the opportunity to network and also to sign up to receive fully funded support for your business through the STBAH programme.

The events will tackle each of the 3 key principles of sustainable (circular) economy.

The first event looked at Designing out Waste & Pollution and the second event looked at how to Keep Products & Materials in Use.

The third and final event in the series will focus on how to:

Regenerate Natural Systems and using Renewable Feedstocks
