About this event

You are invited to join the online National Launch event of the UKRI Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy.

The vision of the Centre is to transform the UK chemical industry’s linear supply chain model into a fossil-independent, climate-positive and environmentally friendly circular economy.

For the launch event a range of experts and leading businesses will discuss the road to circular chemical economy, the role of innovations, the importance of the whole system approach, and various non-technical barriers around business motivation, finance gap, public awareness and policy incentive.

There will be opportunities for Q&A and networking with guest speakers. Various funding opportunities from the UKRI, the National CE-Hub and the Centre will also be introduced.

Programme of the event

  • Welcome and Funding Opportunities by Prof Jin Xuan, Director of the Centre
  • Keynote by Prof Sir Richard Catlow FRS 'Science to Enable Circular Economy'
  • Panel Discussion with academic and industrial leaders
