*NEW COMPETITION – Supply Chain Innovation towards a Circular Economy*

The Technology Strategy Board is to invest up to £5m in collaborative research and development that aims to preserve the value of products and/or materials at end-of-life and keeps them in productive use for longer. We are seeking proposals that reduce environmental impact of material lifecycles and dependence on materials with a supply risk, in other words proposals that make supply chains more circular. Proposals should aim to cut general waste stream losses in half – or more.

Award: Up to £5m
Opens: 04 Nov 2013
Registration closes: 11 Dec 2013
Closes: 18 Dec 2013
