Planned to open in October 2020 the Future Plastic Packaging Solutions competition will see Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, invest up to £2 million in early-stage projects. This is part of the Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging (SSPP) Challenge which aims to establish the UK as a leading innovator in smart and sustainable plastic packaging for consumer products. Its goals are to deliver cleaner growth across the supply chain, with a dramatic reduction in plastic waste entering the environment by 2025. UKCPN and KTN are hosting a briefing event for you to find out more about the competition.
KTN and the UK Circular Plastics Network are hosting a 90 minute virtual forum on 11th November 2020 to consider the use of mathematical science in supporting plastic reuse.
