The Circular and Sustainable Materials Accelerator offers an opportunity to work with BE-ST and access a tailored package of support, that may include advice and mentoring from BE-ST's expert commercialisation team, project partner sourcing, and grant funding depending on the applicants status.


Successful applicants will gain access to state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment in BE-ST’s Innovation Factory and will receive help to manufacture and test product types. They will also be able to tap into BE-ST’s wide-reaching network of industry and academic experts, knowledge, and facilities to accelerate their R&D. 


The innovation centre is on a mission to accelerate the built environment’s transition to net zero. It will be looking to bring companies onto the Accelerator which are readying to take their products to the marketplace, and which are set to bring about significant carbon reductions and to benefit the Scottish economy.
