Event details

10:00 am – 12:30 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
Find out about the £5m investment in a Research and Innovation Hub from the Transforming Foundation Industries ISCF Challenge at our webinar.

The Transforming Foundation Industries ISCF challenge will be investing up to £5m in a Research and Innovation Hub which will be delivered by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI. The aim of this challenge is to enable the foundation industries (made of six separate sectors: metal, glass, ceramics, paper, cement and bulk chemicals) to work together to address their common challenges of competitiveness and sustainability. The Research and Innovation Hub will provide a new cross-sector and multi-disciplinary research focus for the ‘ISCF Transforming Foundation Industries’ programme that will work to address common challenges and accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies and business models within the Foundation Industries.


The aims of the webinar are to:

  • Provide information on the background of the Challenge
  • Answer any questions about the scope of the call
  • Provide an opportunity to network between different sectors and disciplines. This should propel discussions for collaborations on submitting a Research and Innovation Hub grant.


Please note that the 60 minute webinar will be followed by a 90 minute networking activity.
