About the Emerging Technologies Competition

Our annual innovation competition supports early-stage companies and academic entrepreneurs with the commercialisation of their technologies in the fields of health, materials, energy and food.

Over 350 technologies have been identified through the competition since 2013. Twelve of our winners have gone on to raise a combined total of over £25m in investment, and one has recently exited in a £28m trade sale. In addition, we’ve seen university groups spin out in to promising businesses; and companies expand overseas, enter commercial contracts, conduct industrial scale trials, and collectively double their number of employees.

The Emerging Technologies Competition final takes place during Chemistry Means Business, 13–14 June 2017
