A limited number of spaces are still available for the University of Manchester’s Driving Innovation and Diversification workshop on 21 October, supported by the Business Growth Hub.
The event will offer advice on how companies can secure funding for low carbon innovation and how the University’s expertise can help them.
It will take place at the Manchester Science Park on Tuesday 21 October.
Research from ENWORKS shows that there is great potential for companies to diversify into the growing low carbon and environmental goods and services (LCEGS) sector, especially in the engineering and professional services sectors, and the event in October is designed to offer interested parties an avenue of support and a chance to develop new contacts through networking.
The LCEGS sector covers all environment-related business activity, including pollution control, waste management, alternative fuels and vehicles, renewable energy and low carbon building technologies, among others.
For businesses already active in the sector, the event will offer innovation support, including advice on:
- Accessing grant funding for developing products and services
- Maintaining a competitive position
- Exploiting new market opportunities.
The workshop will cover:
- Working with the University of Manchester
- How the University engages with SMEs and avenues of support
- Knowledge Transfer Network – funding collaborative partnerships
- Funding innovative projects
- Industry case studies
- University of Manchester Careers Service – accessing the graduate talent pool
- Green Growth: Low carbon sector support through the Business Growth Hub
- Networking and 1-2-1 advice
