What is the funding for?

The aim of this research, development and demonstration competition is to make the commercial adoption of lower carbon concrete happen faster. The results will enable engagement between innovation projects and end users. This may be delivered by producing outcomes that have the potential for future end users to make Advance Market Commitments (AMC) to buy the product on a commercial basis. Innovate UK have formed the Concrete Commitment Cohort (see below) to provide input to the competition brief and ongoing support in the programme.

Who is this event for?

  • Organisations with innovative solutions to decarbonise concrete.
  • Those in the concrete supply chain that are working to decarbonise the material.
