Proof of Concept Funding

Between 2014 and 2017 FoodWasteNet funded 11 PoC Projects, helping industrial partners to explore getting more value from a wide range of food processing wastes and co-products. Public summaries of funded projects are available:


In summer 2017, FoodWasteNet was awarded an additional £150 000 from the BBSRC  Industry Strategy Challenge Fund. We have used these funds to support a further 7 PoC projects to support work in a  range of areas. Some awards will further develop collaborations arising from previous FoodWasteNet PoC & BIV projects, other awards will support new collaborations.

The project application summaries are available.


We are compiling short profile/case studies to highlight the outputs and impacts of PoC projects. You can read our first here from Dr David Gray.
