Join us and experts for our event on circularity and innovation. The event is 1.5 hours in length, followed by drinks & networking.

Oxfordshire Greentech is partnering with Mewburn Ellis, intellectual property experts and sponsors of the Oxfordshire Greentech circular economy special interest group, to deliver this exciting event around the circular economy.

The event is 1.5 hours in length followed by drinks and networking.

The event

Excessive resource consumption has been flagged as a key contributor to both climate change and ecological breakdown. We are using more of the planet’s resources than our biosphere can safely afford and our current way of doing business means we follow an inefficient and wasteful linear model of take-make-dispose. Resources that could find new lives/purpose end up in landfill or incinerated.

However, there’s an alternative in the form of the “circular economy”. Keeping materials within the loop for longer means we can avoid emissions from the energy needed to extract and manufacture products – and repurposing materials can also save business costs and facilitate better relationships with your customers.

This event brings experts together on the circular economy to discuss taking great ideas and turning them into thriving businesses.

There will be three different speakers all discussing their expertise, including innovators that have taken their ideas into business; venture builders who have worked with start-ups to bring their ideas into this space and; what practical steps need to be taken to bring the ideas to market.

This will be a space to network with other green innovators and investors in the circular economy

Who should come?

  • Innovators in the field
  • Businesses interested in the circular model
  • Businesses that are already circular

The event will be in person in central Oxford with more details to be announced soon including speakers! Sign up now so that you don’t miss out.
