Over three years the Ecosurety Exploration Fund will invest £1million in projects that can reduce the environmental impact of packaging, batteries or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment through innovation or research in the UK.
The Fund are looking to support ideas up to £150,000 that will go on to make a bigger impact beyond the initially funded project - especially those that may ordinarily struggle to get off the ground.
Innovation could include an innovative awareness campaign, technology, initiative, process, trial or material, for example. Research could include academic or industry research into improving existing systems, processes, infrastructure, technology, consumer behaviour or material use, for example.
The £1 million fund will be spread over three years and the application process is open to any UK registered company, charity, not-for-profit or academic organisation. Funds will be released in May 2020 and the project should be completed by May 2021.
The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on 10 March 2020.
