UKRI’s Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging (SSPP) Challenge intends to launch a funding competition for early-stage and mid-stage projects seeking grant funding from £30,000 to £250,000 that aim to:

  • Help make the plastics packaging supply chain more circular;
  • Deliver the objectives and/or targets of the UK Plastics Pact to create a circular economy for plastics, capturing their value by keeping them in the economy and out of the natural environment; and
  • Embed life cycle thinking and end-of-life in packaging design and decisions.

Webinar recording is now available
