This briefing event will provide details on the scope and eligibility requirements for the upcoming UKRI competition – ISCF Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging: Demonstrator Projects Round 2, Expression of Interest.

In addition to scope and eligibility requirements, the KTN and SSPP team will talk through the questions that feature in this Expression of Interest (EoI) competition as well as the grant funding availability for the Full Stage competition.

Following this EoI, an invitation-only Full Stage competition will fund projects that offer commercial-scale demonstration of bold innovation that addresses widely known problems in relation to plastic packaging for consumer products – including first of a kind infrastructure or commercial trials of novel packaging technology or systems.

Projects must address one or more of the UK Plastics Pact targets. The benefits of the new approach must be quantified in terms of the Pact targets where possible. Any environmental impacts must be described and justified.
