BE-ST calls for companies with sustainable building materials to join Accelerator programme

Scotland’s Built Environment – Smarter Transformation (BE-ST) is looking for companies with a sustainable building material product that reduces embodied carbon to join its newly launched Accelerator programme.

Successful applicants will be granted access to manufacturing equipment in BE-ST’s Innovation Factory and receive help to manufacture and test different product types.

They will also be able to tap into BE-ST’s network of industry and academic experts, knowledge, and facilities to accelerate research and development.  

The Circular and Sustainable Materials Accelerator offers an opportunity to work with BE-ST and access a tailored package of support, including advice and mentoring from BE-ST’s commercialisation team, project partner sourcing, and grant funding.  

The innovation centre aims to accelerate the built environment’s transition to net zero.

It will be looking to bring companies onto the Accelerator that are preparing to take their products to the marketplace and which are set to bring about carbon reductions and benefit the Scottish economy. 

Formerly known as Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, BE-ST brings together academia, government bodies, and the wider construction industry in a bid to future-proof for the sector, both commercially and environmentally.
