UKRI AHRC-funded
International Upcycling Research Network
Kick-off meeting (01&04/07/2022)
PI: Dr Kyungeun Sung, De Montfort University | Co-I: Prof Richie Moalosi, University of Botswana
International Upcycling Research Network
Project Summary
 UKRI AHRC Research Networking grant (AH/W007134/1): £42,787
 Project start: 01/06/2022
 Project duration: 24 months
 Background: Moving from a niche to a mainstream practice could realise
the full potential of upcycling. Despite recent increase in publications,
initiatives and businesses in upcycling, research is still embryonic.
Development of upcycling theory and practices across industries,
disciplines and countries is required for growth.
 Purpose: the world’s first long-term platform to facilitate such cross-
industry, multidisciplinary and international research
International Upcycling Research Network
Aims and Objectives
 Aim: create positive synergies between various international actors for
collaborative endeavours to understand and promote upcycling
 Two short-term objectives: (i) expand our understanding of current
upcycling research and practices (seminars); and (ii) collaborative
investigation into the global challenges for scaling up upcycling (ISM
workshops)
 Two medium-to-long-term objectives: (i) develop new cross-industry,
multidisciplinary, international collaborative research projects and
initiatives (meetings); and (ii) create the network website as a long-
term platform
