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 global impact.
Each year we welcome applications from entrepreneurs who are developing technologies that have a strong chemistry component and fall within 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 can be provided an additional £20,000 business acceleration grant (for one year)
• Gain wider support and advice from our competition partners and judges, during the final
