Meet Women Innovators in Foundation Industries (WINFI)

15 September 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Held by Innovate UK KTN

Register to attend

Join us for our first webinar and engage with Women Innovators in the Foundation Industries.

We believe in their powerful ideas and in our role to raise their profile as thought leaders in these legacy industries. Chaired by Neelam Mughal (KTM Advanced Materials) and featuring at least three speakers, you will hear from inspiring women innovators and their entrepreneurial journeys in innovation.

The foundation industries produce materials that make up everything around us: metals, glass, paper, cements, ceramics and chemicals.

The Transforming Foundation Industries Challenge (TFI) seeks to leverage cross-sector collaboration to create step change in these industries through scale up of innovative technologies. The Challenge also looks to address the lack of diversity in these sectors, particularly the underrepresentation of women at senior leadership levels, and most notably in technical and operational roles.

Why should you attend

  • Ask the questions you want to know from fellow innovators
  • Share tips and advice
  • Challenge your assumptions
  • Celebrate the successes of TFI community members

Who should attend

This event is open to any stakeholder (of any sex and gender) in the foundation industries supply chain, interested, involved or innovating in the field of energy and resource efficiency. This includes designers and manufacturers, waste management companies, materials innovators, digital innovators, government and policy representatives, third sector organisations, NGOs, and academic research teams.

Join us in this big conversation to hear our perspectives on female founders in the Foundation Industries.
