How can your business benefit from eco-innovation?

You are invited to attend a preview session on 9th May at Lancaster University to find out how your business can benefit from eco-innovation. Lancaster University Management School is collaborating with the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation to form the Low Carbon Lancashire Innovation Hub, which supports Lancashire businesses to grow through innovation for a better environment.

Eco-Innovation is a huge emerging market. Through this collaboration, Lancashire businesses have a unique opportunity to tap into this now. This preview session will give Lancashire SMEs the opportunity to find out everything they need to know about how supporting a low carbon agenda could benefit their business.

This session will set the context of what a low carbon agenda is and how eco-innovation can benefit business whilst supporting the environment. On the day, speakers who have already been on the eco-innovation journey will share their experiences and there will be the opportunity to ask any questions during the panel discussion.

There will also be information available about what programmes and access to R&D opportunities are available through the Low Carbon Lancashire Innovation Hub. This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and is available to ERDF eligible companies.
