STBAH Sustainable Economy event series: #2 Keep Products & Materials in Use

The Circular Economy is a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Many organisations are recognising that they need to adopt the transition towards a circular economy.

The Sustainable Technologies Business Acceleration Hub (STBAH) are hosting a series of linked events exploring approaches to creating a sustainable economy. These events will aim to stimulate a regional conversation about how we can achieve the 3 principles of a sustainable economy bringing the voices of academics, funders, innovators, SMEs and corporates to the debate.

The first event, #1 Designing out Waste and Pollution, was held on 3 April. The second event will be on the topic of #2 Keeping Products and Materials in Use.

If you are a small or medium entrerprise (SME) or start-up interested in reuse, repair, remanufacture or recycling, or new business models such as ‘‘access over ownership” then this event is for you!

There will be keynote talks, followed by flash presentations from SMEs innovating in reuse, repair and recycling, and then a panel discussion, rounded off with the opportunity to network and also to sign up to receive fully funded support for your business through the STBAH programme.

Find out more about the agenda and speakers, and register to attend this free event.

The third and final event in this series will be held on Wednesday 18th September #3 Regenerate Natural Systems.

We highly recommend you join us for this series. More information about these and future events can be found on the STBAH website.

The STBAH is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund to support start-up and existing sustainable technology and low carbon businesses.  The project will establish and scale-up over 130 SMEs over the next three years within the low carbon and sustainable technology fields.  The aim is to help these businesses grow, innovate and establish lasting research partnerships with the University of Bath, generating economic growth in the region and delivering on the Government’s Industry Strategy.  Find out more on the STBAH website.
