Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging: Business Led R&D Competition Briefing Postponed

Posted on Posted on 19 Mar 2021

The Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge Business-led Research & Development competition briefing event, due to be held on 24th March has been postponed.

There will be a short delay to opening the Business-led Research and Development competition from the ISCF Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge and the briefing event scheduled for 24th March has been postponed.


Following the Budget on 3rd March and before we have certainty surrounding the BEIS spending review settlement for 2021-22, we are still preparing for the financial year ahead and it is not currently possible for UKRI to finalise its financial plans.


In light of this ongoing uncertainty SSPP, along with the other Challenges within ISCF, is pausing the opening of competitions. We very much appreciate your patience with this, and we hope to have more clarity in the coming weeks.


As soon as we are able, we will confirm the opening date for BLR&D and give details of the rescheduled Briefing Event, all registered attendees for the 24th March event will be automatically registered for the rescheduled event.
