News: Technology Strategy Board research funding
The Technology Strategy Board (TSB), the UK agency responsible for providing funding to industry for research, has announced a competition for feasibility studies on the circular economy.
Monday, 24th September 2012
Up to £25,000 is available for UK companies to investigate areas relevant to remanufacturing. We are currently involved in several projects for innovative UK companies involved in remanufacturing and reuse and would like to hear from you on how we could partner with you on this call. The competition wants proposals for new business models to enable closed loop economies, new designs that help remanufacturing and refurbishment, and designs for product life extension. Small and medium sized business can receive up to 75% of the total project cost and also subcontract up to 75% of the project where specialists are needed. Further details of the funding can be found on the TSB website (linked below). If you would like to discuss your idea, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
