Six-Month Sustainability Challenge

10 January, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 16 March, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

The Six-Month Sustainability Challenge offers grants up to £25,000 for short-term, high-impact innovation projects focused on sustainability and creating viable circular economies. Grants can fund up to 50% of the total project value, with the rest coming from company resources. In-kind match, such as staff time, is encouraged.

Applicants must be businesses associated with the fashion and textile industry; you can apply as an individual business or in collaboration with other companies.

The lead applicant must:

  • Have been established for more than 12 months
  • Generate turnover above £50,000 per year
  • Be registered in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, or working with a project partner registered there
  • Be a member of Future Fashion Factory – if you have not already joined our free membership community, you will be asked to do so when you submit your application.

In addition, the project must include collaboration with a researcher at one of our three centres: the University of Leeds, University of Huddersfield, and Royal College of Art.
