UK Research and Innovation Call: Creative Circular Economy Approaches to Eliminate Plastics Waste

Closing Date for EOI Submissions 10 July 2018 at 16:00 Hours

Closing Date for Full Proposals 16 August 2018 at 16:00 Hours

Up to £8m is available for institutional awards for up to 18 months to research organisations to bridge the gaps between UK Research and Innovation research disciplines and respond creatively to the challenge of creating new circular economy approaches to eliminating future plastic waste.  The programme should focus on novel ideas and solutions that include consideration of sustainable feedstocks and materials, manufacturing and recycling processes, consumer behaviour and systems (for example legal, fiscal and policy systems) set within a context of environmental and health benefits.
