Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging

Innovate UK Business Connect delivers benefit by:

  • Developing a comprehensive network of contacts and partnerships to support a successful deployment of SSPP with existing UK and international networks in plastics recycling to the mutual benefit of all parties.
  • Promote excellence in the UK’s innovative packaging systems by delivering conferences and showcasing SSPP impact on the circularity of plastics in the UK.
  • Stimulate collaborations for high quality projects into the challenge competitions.
  • Demonstrate the value of the funded SSPP projects, incorporating sector-leading case studies which will broaden the impact and commercialisation of the output from the SSPP projects.
  • Showcase the academic research funded from the SSPP funds led by NERC.
  • Increase the profile and visibility for SSPP through digital media. Have a ‘go-to’ web presence through UKCPN.
