EnterprisePlus - Supporting small companies in the chemical sciences

Events & resources

We recognise that supporting our EnterprisePlus members requires more than providing grants, and that access to information and support is equally valuable.

We support our member companies by providing a wide range of events intended to help them achieve their goals. These events cover both technical and non-technical subjects, and are held all over the country to make them as accessible as possible.

Through our prizes and awards, we aim to stimulate innovation and reward excellence. Our annual Industry & Technology Awards recognise high achievers in the chemical sciences, and the Emerging Technologies Competition helps promising research become a commercial reality.

Our webinars cover a broad range of topics of interest to small companies. You can view all of our webinar recordings here.

Prizes and awards

Our Industry & Technology Awards recognise outstanding contribution in industry worldwide. Every year we celebrate the best achievements in the chemical sciences industry in innovation, science, entrepreneurship, outreach, and technical skills in the laboratory. You can view the winners of our 2017 awards here.

The Emerging Technologies Competition is our annual innovation competition, accelerating commercialisation of the best European technologies for the benefit of society and the economy. The competition welcomes technologies in healthcare & wellbeing, energy & environment, food & water, and materials. You can register your interest for 2018 here.


 Advice on key aspects of laboratory health and safety can  be found on Learn Chemistry.

We work with our regional partners to ensure that our impact is felt across the country. Our regional partners who also offer their own programmes and support to SMEs are NEPIC, EM Chem, Chemicals Northwest, and Scottish Enterprise.
