FREE Webinars: UK Circular Plastic Network & Knowledge Transfer Network

Date Published: Monday 20th April 2020

The UK Circular Plastic Network (UKCPN) & Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) will be hosting a series of workshops to support collaboration for the next Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging competitions this summer.


These online events will give details about the ISCF Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge (SSPP) – a £60m business grant support initiative from UKRI, and will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Identify and link with new partners within the workshop theme
  • Build, and/or join, consortia forming around forthcoming projects
  • Discuss and refine your projects ideas with potential partners
  • Gather information on forthcoming ISCF SSPP grant awards


Aimed at companies and research organisations that are interested in Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging projects, these events will include information about support from UKRI for businesses, the scope and eligibility, and the kind of projects UKRI are looking for.  The workshop will then be a highly participative guided and facilitated consortia/project building and proposal development exercise.
