John Whittall, Lead Technologist for Resource Efficiency at Technology Strategy Board.

The collaborative research and development competition Design challenges for a circular economy is intended to help companies work with new partners to radically rethink the design of products, components or systems to generate value by retaining or regenerating materials and components over several cycles of use. Industrial research projects up to 300,000 are sought with business partners attracting 50% funding for projects (SMEs can claim 60% of costs). Sub-contracting within the UK is permitted where necessary to bring in relevant expertise, up to a limit of 50% of the total project costs. The competition opens on 29th July 2013, with a deadline for registration of noon 4th September 2013. The deadline for applications is noon 11th September 2013.
