Posted on Posted on 25 Nov 2020

Join this webinar on 8th December to find out about the current and upcoming funding from the SSPP Challenge, the themes and types of projects we want to fund and advice on guidance on how to prepare the best application for your project.

On Tuesday 8th December, KTN and UKCPN will be hosting a webinar on the 2021 Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge Funding Competitions. 


In early 2021 the SSPP challenge will offer up to £25m funding to support research, development and demonstration projects that will make the UK Plastic Packaging Supply Chain more circular and help deliver the targets of the UK Plastics Pact.


In this webinar Challenge Director Paul Davidson will outline the aims of SSPP and provide the details of the upcoming funding competitions, including the specific themes the Challenge is particularly looking to fund. There will also be an overview of the projects offered funding in 2020 by the Challenge and a detailed breakdown of the criteria used by the SSPP Challenge Funding to judge projects.


KTN will also explain how they can support projects and improve their chances of success.
