An EPSRC workshop, on behalf of UKRI

EPSRC, on behalf of UKRI, is working with Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Innovate UK, to convene two interdisciplinary meetings which aim to bring together the respective research and innovation communities with an interest in Circular Economy, and to strengthen collaboration to enable greater interdisciplinary working.

A circular economy is one where we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. A rapid transition to a more circular economy  offers the UK potential for sustainable growth and prosperity, but requires clear implementation pathways, based upon sound research evidence.

The meetings are intended to:
  • Seek input on key challenges and opportunities
  • Facilitate cross-disciplinary networking
  • Build potential new research collaborations.
  • Identify potential resource flows around which communities could convene and build future funding proposals. Examples of which may include but are not limited to: food value chains, consumer goods and future material systems

Further information and booking

Booking will close for this meeting at 16:00 on 21st May 2019. To book and find further details visit the event webpage.
This event is also being repeated on Wednesday 5th June at Park Inn by Radisson Manchester City Centre, Manchester.
