Call for Sectoral-Specific Studies

Updated: Feb 7



The UK Manufacturing Symbiosis NetworkPLus (UKMSN+) was set up to address the circular economy priority area in the EPSRC Manufacturing the Future programme. This is the first round of call for studies supported by UKMSN.


For this first round, £80k has been allocated to fund short- term exploratory studies no longer than 8 months. Each study will conduct horizon scanning research targeted to specific manufacturing sectors of the UK economy. Altogether, the studies will generate relevant knowledge that, first, identify business, digital technology and/or materials science challenges hindering the implementation of industrial collaboration practices by manufacturing firms and, second, identify manufacturing synergies opportunities, gaps and potential solutions for the identified challenges in the light of circular economy practices.


Key Dates
