Proposed Funding Competition: Sustainable Materials and Products

The Technology Strategy Board propose to launch a competition to fund highly innovative collaborative research and development projects that address the application and demonstration of technologies in the area of Sustainable Materials and Products.

 

The focus is likely to be on the development of technologies, across the materials sector value chain, for:

·         Materials technology innovation supporting the development of products and services for a “circular economy”

·         Technologies for the processing / reprocessing of materials with reduced environmental impact (in terms of energy or other impacts)

·         The substitution/reduction of materials which are scarce, difficult to source, expensive or deleterious to health and the environment and/or the use of which may be restricted through future regulation or legislation (e.g. REACH).

 

The call is expected to be launched in March 2013.
