Circular Economy Innovation Network Launch Event
April 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm| Free
Join us at the Circular Economy Innovation Network launch event on the 26th April to find out how you can get involved in exploring how we could use wool, aluminium and chemicals in novel ways to benefit the sector, as well as ways we could use resources more efficiently across the value chain.
The Circular Economy Innovation Network aims to create stronger, more collaborative, and resilient industries working together to achieve net zero through circular innovation.
By building new sector communities, focussed on circular design, circular business models, and circular recovery we are empowering industry members to come together for the first time to co-create a shared pathway for impact in achieving net zero through circular innovation.
We are launching three new challenge communities (wool, aluminium, and chemicals), that will collaborate to co-create a Circular Innovation Action Plan for their sector. This action plan will identify the key sectoral barriers to net zero and how the circular economy can be used as a framework to overcome these barriers.
As part of this process, communities will agree on two challenges they want to tackle together. Using our Innovation Exchange platform, we will seek to find potential solutions and broker new relationships between established industry and innovators.
We are building the Circular Economy Innovation Network to bring together stakeholders across the wool, aluminium, and chemicals value chain to explore how innovation can enhance the role of wool, aluminium, and chemicals in the UK. Here we begin to explore the challenges facing the three industries in the UK and consider where innovation could have a role to play in supporting producers, processors and end users.
We will be holding our first launch event online on 26th April 2022, 11:00 – 12:30, featuring three breakout rooms on the 3 sectors, with Q&A.
Join us at this introductory event on the 26th April at 11am to find out how you can get involved in exploring:
- How we could use wool, aluminium and chemicals in novel ways to benefit the sector
- Ways we could use resources more efficiently across the value chain
This event is part of our Circular Innovation Network, which looks at alternatives to using high carbon materials to support UK industries in reaching net zero.
