Collaborations, circular economy and climate change
How can businesses and academics come together to accelerate ideas and projects which help to contribute to the global climate change challenge? Join our panel of speakers to find out!

This November marks one year until COP26, the UN climate change conference that will take place in Glasgow in 2021. At the recent Countdown to COP26 event collaboration was a recurrent theme amongst the panel sessions as a key approach to address and tackle climate change challenges. Collaboration was also mentioned as the ‘Rosetta Stone’ in the contribution to the circular economy opportunity to open the door to new products and services to impact climate change.

We are delighted to be joined by Michael Forbes, Refurbishment Manager at Renewable Parts and Professor Jonathan Corney from the Scottish Institute of Remanufacture (SIR) at the University of Strathclyde. Lorraine Thomson, Business Engagement Manager, Interface will host the session and highlight the support, partners and funding opportunities available to Scottish organisations.

Renewable Parts have adopted circular economy principles to the renewables market, in particular how wind turbine components can be refurbished and remanufactured to create a greener and more sustainable renewable energy industry. Renewable Parts have been involved in several projects with academia to support their R&D.

The Scottish Institute of Remanufacture (SIR) at the University of Strathclyde is a hub of expertise in remanufacturing, refurbishment and reuse that enables industry to become part of the circular economy.
