Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Innovations Club are holding a Launch Event for the STFC 2016 Challenge Led Applied Systems Programme (CLASP) call. The event will be held in the Harvey Goodwin suite of the Church House Conference Centre, London on the 5th July 2016.
CLASP is intended to support the de-risking of the R&D process for industry through the development of technology demonstrators and industry-ready prototype systems.
The focus of the 2016 CLASP call is Energy and Environment. The launch event aims to bring together academia, industry and knowledge exchange professionals to discuss how CLASP can support projects that apply STFC-funded research and capabilities to address key energy and environment challenges.
Up to £1.5M will be available in this call to fund a range of projects, from short feasibility studies to larger developmental projects. Proposals will have a focus on, but not limited to, key priority areas that will be identified by a focus group composed of stakeholders. These priority areas will be announced shortly before the launch event.
The day will comprise of presentations from academic researchers and industry figures highlighting their work in energy and the environment, as well as information on funding opportunities and opportunities to meet potential future collaborators.
Please register here to attend the day.
