Business R&D and Innovation Support

We aim to support innovation and growth in a truly sustainable manner. The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) has highlighted the effects of climate change and the urgent need to act now and in all sectors. This represents opportunities for business to develop new low carbon products and services, and our business support is designed to facilitate this.

Better for business, better for the environment

The centre led a Science Innovation Audit published by the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy demonstrating that the North West of England has the knowledge, skills, place and capacity to be world leading in the development of technologies for clean and sustainable growth. As a result the centre now leads on Eco-I North West as is a partner for the Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory project (LCEI).
