Funding innovative re-use and repair projects

Re-use and repair is essential in the development of Scotland’s circular economy.

The £18 million Circular Economy Investment Fund includes a specific focus on innovative re-use and repair projects led by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) which:

  • Are collaborative in nature and of a sufficient scale to demonstrate to or inspire others
  • Implement new solutions to transform re-use and repair activities regionally or nationally
  • Test and deliver new services and models of operation

This funding is being offered as part of the £18m Circular Economy Investment Fund, which comprises support from the Scottish Government and the European Regional Development Fund.

How to apply

Please complete the short Circular Economy Investment Fund Outline Project Proposal Form. We will let you know within 30 working days if your proposal has been successful, at which point you will be invited to complete the final part of the application process.

Eligibility and guidance notes are available in the documents menu on the right-hand side of this page.


We are running surgeries in April where potential applicants can meet with the Re-use and Repair Programme Manager to discuss project ideas. These surgeries will take place at our office in Stirling on the afternoons of the 18 and 19 April.

If you would like to make an appointment, please email anna.cummins@zerowastescotland.org.uk specifying which date you are interested in.

The £18 million Circular Economy Investment Fund, administered by Zero Waste Scotland, offers investment for SMEs based in Scotland and supports work that will deliver circular economy growth. It is supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the £73million Resource Efficiency Circular Economy Accelerator Programme.
