Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) in partnership with Innovate UK is undertaking a detailed analysis of research, scale-up and innovator activities in the UK that can help the Chemical Sector to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This analysis will lead to a public report highlighting the key strengths with the main target audience for this report being the chemical sector.
Competition for Innovators
As part of this project, KTN this week launched a competition to identify the top innovators in the UK who are developing technologies that can help the Chemical Sector reduce the carbon intensity of its products or processes as part of the journey towards Net Zero carbon emissions.
Selected companies will be provided with an opportunity to join KTN at the EvoNorth Conference (Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire Cricket Ground) on the 4th & 5th March 2020. EvoNorth represents the largest gathering of senior executives from the public and private sector in the North of England and this year Net Zero will be a key theme.
Why should innovators enter this competition?
Top innovators will be:
● Profiled in a KTN report which will analysing and highlight innovators who can help the chemicals sector move toward Net Zero
● Invited to pitch training with KTN’s expert Access to Funding and Finance team to help better prepare them for pitching
● Provided with exhibition space at EvoNorth
● Given an additional opportunity to pitch at EvoNorth alongside KTN
● Given a ticket to attend both days of the conference (valued at £495)
For more information please visit the KTN competition webpage where you will find details of the scope, eligibility and further information. We would appreciate your help in making your network aware of this opportunity.
Seeking input from the Chemical Sector
We are keen to engage with the established chemical sector to better understand their perspectives on the key innovation challenges (and opportunities) in moving to Net Zero so that we can introduce them to innovators with solutions. If you would like to be involved and provide input then please contact me ([email protected]) or Sheena Hindocha ([email protected]).
