WMG supported by Innovate UK and KTN are hosting this virtual workshop to help launch the Transforming Foundation Industry (TFI) Large collaborative R&D calls. The session is open to all businesses across the foundation industries.
Who should attend: Any business, university or RTO working in, or supporting, the foundation industries (glass, metals, chemicals, cement, ceramics and paper) who interested in hearing more about the opportunities and funding calls.
Breakout sessions: We will run four parallel themed breakout rooms where you will be able to discuss and review your project ideas, network and talk to the experts.
