It is deadline day for innovators to submit their tech inspired ideas for advancing the circular economy.

For the chance to take part in the Circular Economy Hackathon at next month’s RMW conference in Birmingham, proposals need to be submitted by 5pm (GMT) today. The organisers are looking for ideas that harness IoT, mobile tech and smart data to accelerate circularity.

Those initially selected will pitch in London on 31 August, with the five finalists then battling it out in Birmingham at the Circular Economy Connect Theatre for £7,000.

The RMW conference takes place at Birmingham’s NEC, on 12 -14 September.
