Former Brookside star, Simon O’Brien, will host an event in the Baltic Triangle for businesses to find out how they can become environmental sustainability by working with the Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory.
The Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory (LCEI) helps local businesses develop innovative low carbon goods, processes and services through collaborative partnerships with researchers and students from the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Lancaster University.
The ‘Clean Growth Social’ will take place on Thursday, 21 February 2019 in the Baltic Triangle and provides companies from across the Liverpool city region the opportunity to meet the LCEI team and discuss low carbon development opportunities.
Former Brookside star, TV presenter and sustainability campaigner Simon O’Brien will host the session, from 5.30pm to 7pm, and businesses will hear how he sees clean growth being a key driver for the city region’s economy, as well as offering insights into sustainability opportunities for businesses.
Alongside refreshments, there will also be a chance for networking with academics and businesses engaged in improving the environment.
Eight businesses will be offered the chance for free to engage specifically on the themes of the Year of the Environment 2019 through working with students, local authorities and academics to research just how Liverpool city region is performing, with further insights and event opportunities the business can use in their own promotions.
LCEI Director at the University of Liverpool, Dr Matt Fulton, said: “Lots of businesses from a wide variety of industries in the city region have already benefited from the support the Low Carbon Eco Innovatory can give.
“As the leading low carbon project in the city region, it makes sense for us to link up with a great initiative like the Year of the Environment to help businesses get involved. We hope the clean growth social will be a great opportunity for businesses to see how they can make a difference.”
Funded with support from the European Regional Development fund (ERDF), the LCEI can provide companies with unbiased specialist advice, reports and product testing from dedicated researchers as well as arrange PhD, Masters, undergraduate projects and internships with companies in order to bring about economic and environmental benefits.
THE LCEI works with companies in any sector and previous projects have covered a wide variety of disciplines including Engineering, Chemistry, Management, Biology., Architecture, lntergrative Biology, Computing Science and Mathematics. Any potential innovation or research idea that can contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions can be considered.
The ‘Clean Growth Social’ will take place 5.30 – 7pm on Thursday, February 21 at Love Lane Brewery Bar & Kitchen (formerly H1780 Tap & Still) in Bridgewater Street in the Baltic Triangle.
