Knowledge Exchange Showcase – 5th November 2019

STFC offers a diverse portfolio of knowledge exchange schemes, designed to facilitate the transfer of STFC funded science and technology into commercial applications.

This event held at the Royal College of Physicians, London, NW1 4LE will highlight the opportunities available to potential applicants, and provide a platform for delegates from across the STFC community, companies and potential users/government agencies to network and form potential partnerships. Across the 2020 KE schemes, up to £4M in total is available to fund a number of projects spread over two KE calls and the Challenge Led Applied System Programme (CLASP) call. Please visit for more information.

As well information on how to apply for this funding, there will be talks from previous recipients of both schemes and advice and tips on making applications from the Chairs of both the IPS and CLASP Panels. Applicants from industry will have the opportunity to hold a stand showcasing their products/expertise, to help identify their potential as project partners.

The CLASP challenge areas for 2019/20 will be Security and Environment, (please see the website for some example themes). To aid in the development of applications, representatives from various government agencies will highlight some of the relevant challenges in their sector. Throughout the day, there will be networking opportunities for applicants to meet and share ideas with potential project partners.
