The Emerging Technologies Competition is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual initiative for early stage companies and academic entrepreneurs who want to commercialise their technologies to make a societal impact.
The competition is a European programme seeking to identify start-ups and spin outs who are developing the most novel, innovative and promising chemistry tech.
Each year we welcome applications from entrepreneurs who are developing technologies in one of the following categories:
• Food & Drink
• Energy & Environment
• Enabling Technologies
From the application round, 24 finalists are selected to present their technologies to a panel of judges. These judges then choose 4 winners (1 per category).
• Receive a cash prize of £20,000 (per competition category)
• Be assigned a Royal Society of Chemistry mentor who will provide ongoing support for one year
• Through discussion with their mentor, winners, who are an incorporated company, can be provided a business acceleration grant up to the value of £20,000
• Gain wider support and advice from our competition partners and judges, during the final
