Location: Liverpool Exhibition Centre, Kings Road, Liverpool, L3 4FP
Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) is working with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and Innovate UK to organise a brokerage, matchmaking and information event. The event is focusing on Horizon 2020, technology transfer and commercial opportunities for businesses making the transition to a circular economy and becoming more resource efficient.
The event is taking place during the International Festival for Business 2016 (IFB2016). IFB2016 is a global marketplace for creating connections and doing deals. It brings together thousands of businesses from around the world for three weeks of events, networking and deal-making.
The circular economy offers considerable economic benefits with analysis by McKinsey estimating that circularity could add $1trillion to the global economy by 2025. To support the move towards a circular economy the European Commission has committed over €725 million of Horizon 2020 funding in their 2016-17 work programme. The aim of the event is to support organisations to access this funding by developing innovative R&D projects. There will be opportunities for companies to meet new partners and consortium members for Horizon 2020 projects plus the opportunity to discuss new routes to market for existing solutions.
